Looks very delicate Ashley, I've not heard of that one.

P. (Deinostigma) tamiana is probably more widely grown Shelagh, but Primulina is now a big genus and there are quite a few hybrids too. 
This one is more robust than D. tamiana & with lightly patterned foliage, but is just as easy to manage. 
My plant was rather slow at first but now is showing a good flush of flower buds in the leaf axils.  I haven't tried propagating it yet.

A Titanotrichum oldhamii, which I've also posted in another thread.
Said to just about manage planted outdoors.
