Lovely plant Gail. It's one of my "you buy 'em and then loose 'em" species, of which there are many!

Yes, I have all too many of those. This is a new acquisition which I thought I'd better record for posterity in case I lose it! I've also got the white flowered form 'Alison Holland' so hope I see it flower before I kill it...

Primula vialii has the  reputation of  being quite  short-lived - and I  hear  that the  new  white  form is the  same - and that it ('Alison Holland')  does not  set  seed.

Primula polyneura (or a plant grown with that name) flowered earlier in June.
Also Primula waltonii started to flower already in June 10 and is still flowering. It has a peculiar flower stem this year.
This orange primula was grown from Insriach hybrids seeds, and it is flowering right now. Is is P.x bullesiaana?
The last one is grown as P.burmanica, I was expecting a redder flower but it is a late flowering and is now starting to grow second round of flowers so it is only in the beginning of flowering.

Nice leaf on that polyneura Leena.
Having been fairly pessimistic about 'Alison Holland' - it is now flowering for me...

I like it, too. :)
Your 'Alison Holland' is really lovely!

Nothing really fancy but I'n thrilled to see that this potful of gold-lace primula survived last summer and then the winter to re-flower this spring  :)
cheers

This is the second year that Primula chionantha has put on a repeat performance in the autumn.

And it's  not  a  half-hearted effort, is it? Super!
