Primula allionii and its forms and hybrids are such pretty plants.

Something a bit different - for me, anyway!
 Julia Corden got a rather super new primula and wanted to know more about it  and asked  Pam Eveleigh of Primula World for advice.

I wondered if it might be a member of the  Corutsoides Section, some sort of P. heucherifolia  perhaps.... wrong again!
 
Pam replied to Julia :
This looks like the new hybrid P. filchnerae x P. praenitens (formerly P. sinensis).

The inflated calyx with a flat base is an indication of Section Auganthus which has as member species P. filchnerae, P. hubeiensis, P. praenitens and P. rupestris. Though P. rupestris is very close to P. praenitens, Chinese researchers have studied them and determined them to be distinct.

 The  calyx with its flat base is easily seen in this photo

Photographed just before the new snow fall today, I recently bought this Primula kialensis from Aberconwy. The AGS Encyclopedia says this plant is easy but very short-lived, so I'll have to see how long it survives. I have planted it in a north-facing tufa bank.

Hi, Paul,
That's a great looking P. kialensis.  I saw it growing on damp rock faces in Sichuan and then grew it from seed that was mislabeled as P. dryadifolia.  It lasted a couple of seasons, blooming and then fading away the second season.  Hopefully yours will last longer than mine!

A few Primulas from the greenhouse:-

An unnamed allionii raised by David Philbey under his reference DPP 454-01
Another unnamed allionii this one from Gerd Stopp under his reference 10-08
An unnamed hybrid (I think) under reference Lismore 79-26
P. 'Joan Hughes'
P. 'Lindum Eros'

Seem this is appearing in a few garden centres around the UK - and perhaps Europe.

 It's best treated as half-hardy, though, I think.
