I wonder if anyone can identify this Primula at a friend's which is believed to be a species.  Blooming here now with the likes of Cypripedium reginae, Peonias etc.

It looks like a beesiana x bulleyana hybrid to me John, but I'm far from an expert.

There are so many hybrids within that basically japonica group. I think Ashwood has a strain, so does Barnhaven and other nurseries who do primulas. All seem to be good plants for cool spots with a bit of overhead shade. I think this one is a hybrid john, rather than a species.
