Hi all hoping someone can help me identify this plant.  I was given this plant last year I placed it in the partially shaded part in my southwest garden.  Since I potted it has had a continuous bloom of flowers (even in the snow) not that I'm complaining however as I don't know what it is I don't know what I'm meant to do with it....... Any ideas??

    Primula.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    And there's something else growing with it.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Yes, looks like a Hydrangea.

    No it's not alone, primula are not woody plants

    Don't Hydrangeas loose their leaves and flowers? Apologies if this is a stupid question I'm a complete flower\plant novice 🙈

    The woody stem is a hydrangea maybe.
    The plant in flower is the primula

    Oh, can it continue to grow like that or does it need to be separated? I just planted as it was given to me 🤷‍♀️

    When the primula has finished flowering and the leaves start to go yellow I usually dig them up, cut them down to a stub, divide them, they come apart easily and replant tucked away somewhere ,
    Then next spring replant where they can be seen
