Here is - rather early - Primula megasaefolia (nearly hardy outside but for safety in a pot)

Maggi, thank you for the notice of Eric Jarretts Primula allionii Elke Weiss.
There is only a small problem: The picture shows a beautiful plant, but is not Elke Weiss.
Attached are 2 Pictures of the true plant.

Oh dear, that's   a shame  - we  must  let  Eric Jarret  and  Jon Evans  know.

 edit  to add,  Eric Jarrett  has  confirmed to Jon Evans  that  he's  grown the  plant  for  around  ten years  and  the  name  may have   got  muddled.

Compare Steves P. frondosa with my picture of March 2020 in the northern hemisphere reply 81. I can,t remember if I bought the plants of P. farinosa or grew them from seed. It is early for farinosa. I,ve read descriptions of both species and wonder which mine is.

Ian, the AGS Encyclopedia says that P. frondosa and P. farinosa are very close, the main differences being the length of the sepal lobes relative to the length of the calyx (1/3 vs 1/2), and the shape of the sepal tips, which are acute in P. frondosa and obtuse in P. farinosa - my own plant definitely fits P. frondosa on both characters. It is difficult to be certain from your photo, but I think the sepal tips on your plant are also acute rather than obtuse. When I ordered seed I chose P. frondosa in preference to P. farinosa because it is supposedly much easier in cultivation.
