What kind of plant is it???

For Mother's Day, my son bought me an outdoor plant. There was no instructions or anything on what to do with it, except someone had written "primevere" and half sun/half shade.

It is a flowering plant - flowers are pinkish with yellow centers. The flowers are about the size of a quarter, lots of them and the leaves are not too big. Right now the plant looks great, but I am not lucky with outdoor plants.

Has anyone every heard of this plant before???

well primevere means spring.. that's all I can say. You can always take it to a garden shop and ask them what it is, or take a picture a post it. I'm sure someone on this board will answer.
