Looks like one of the colour forms of Primula 'Garryarde Guinevere' to me. But then what do I know?

This is not an exact match but I think it gives a clue to the liniage of yours.

Primula polyanthus 'Francisca'.

Falls City, OR USA

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F  -9.4C.  Rainfall 50"+  but none  June-+September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight.  soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.  Oregon- where Dallas is NNW of Phoenix.

JohnnyD,

Primula 'Garryarde Guinevere'
seems to be correct, as Palustris suggested.

"Primula 'Guinevere' or 'Garryard Guinivere' or 'Guinivere'

"We are pleased to be able to offer this very old named variety. It has purplish-bronze leaves and umbels of pink yellow-eyed flowers. The whole plant has a magical shimmery quality to it. Polyanthus form.It was apparently raised at Kinlough, County Leitrim in Ireland by Mrs Johnson but it's real origins are a bit bit of a mystery. "
