Thank you for the beautiful pictures, you have very good forms of P. marginata. These Primulas are
also my favourites, not so difficult and very rewarding. The different shapes of the leaves are alo
quite showy when the flowers are gone.

The henrici forms surprised local members of the American Primula Society, particularly the one with both red and yellow centres.  Did Alan grow them from seed, and is it available?

Thanks, Maggi.

I checked the seed exchanges.  It has not been offered in North American exchanges, but
the AGS and SRGC seedlists of 2019/2020 each had the same four offerings:

Primula henrici,
henrici ex ACE1671,
henrici  ex Holubec,
henrici  ex PBCO305

Herman, very nice Primulas. I especially like your 'Guinevere'. I sowed Barnhaven 'Vera Maud' last year, and was wondering how similar that may be to 'Guinevere'? Both have dark leaves and pale flowers.

Diane, I've had a reply  from Alan who writes ....

"Yes Maggie, all my current stock are seed raised. The bulk of my seed came from Peter Hood via our own Local (AGS) group seed distribution and from plants of what were called P. dubernardiana that I had raised from an other seed source. The plants that have the red and yellow centres I think might be to do with stages of fertilisation. ( e.g. like the red centres of some androsaces which is also said to be a post fertilisation thing ). But that's only my guess. Someone like John Richards might be able to help with that idea. Many of my plants also "age" their petals red, whatever their original colour."

It is always amazing, how the old forms  perform,
but newer ones and botanical species are always
fascinating to me.

Can anyone help identify this primula. It was given by a friend who simply didnít like it. I do. Last autumn it had rather big leaves. Now - small balls of smallish flowers. Thank you

Oleg, your Primula looks like Primula halleri to me.

 Tristan, Apart from obviously being grown in a pot, is it placed outside and blooming outdoors? Fragrance is imo a great plus even if it just faint or subtle. The plant is very beautiful, very much to my taste. I could easily add it to my shade garden. Could you expand for me some of the cultural requirements you've found with this montane species. I assume that it is a wet meadow or wet under-story forest species. Or something in between. TYia.Arturo
