Not a patch on the Primula allionii seedlings Hans posted recently but I am quite pleased with my little allionii "Crowsley Variety" as it is the very first one I have been able to keep through the previous Summer and Autumn without it rotting off on me. Now that I've got the "knack" I must get some more!

I really like the deep pink flowered allionii Hans - super big flower.

A couple in flower now for me: the first an unnamed clone, the second P allionii 'Jenny Seedling'

Dave, how old is your plant please? Only because I need to know what to expect if I can keep mine through another Summer and Winter! :D

David - probably about 5 or 6 years for both plants. I do get some problem with botrytis, with rosettes suddenly dying. If I don't catch this quickly, to remove the rosette, then large parts die back. I find the only option then is to pull the plant apart and start again with the uninfected rosettes. I don't find these plants easy, and I have a fan set above the bench where I keep these. But they are super when growing well..... Good luck with yours.

Dave, thanks for that, I've got something to aim at now.
