    As far as I know, primrose isn't a compound noun.

    I suppose War would depend on what's meant by it -- may be the simple definition of a war (a conflict) in which case I would say it's concrete, but don't take my word for it; or it could refer to the idea of war and all that comes with it, including the horror, tragedy, loss, etc. which might be more abstract.

    I'm not entirely sure, to be honest; was just thinking aloud.

    A concrete noun is a thing that you can touch and taste. You can touch and taste blood, dirt, and butter.You can't touch and taste astonishment, tragedies, or death. Some words take a little thought to decide whether they're concrete (think cement that you can touch and taste) or abstract. Countryside is a tough one, but you'd be touching and tasting dirt or grass, not the countryside. A concrete noun must be able to be touched AND tasted.
