Poor lot of Primulas for me this year mainly due to lack of attention caused by the never-ending bad weather. Many of them I shall break down into cuttings in the next few weeks so hopefully normal service will be restored next year. Just a couple here both originally raised by David Philbey.

Some of the primulas beginning to flower. Not brilliant this year for us either, just too damp.

In far better nick than some of mine Sue. The following might be useful to you.

Joan Hughes (allionii x P. Linda Pope)
Broadwell Rosie (un-known hybrid)
Anna Griffith (allionii cultivar) rescued from Anna Griffith's collection after her death by Kath Dryden
James  (allionii cultivar)
Adrian Jones (allionii cultivar)

Anna Griffith is my favorite allionii

'Sonny Evans' is a good pink. I like that, not one I've seen I don't think.

One of my favourites Maggi, but this year I have struggled with it. Fingers crossed it will keep growing now that the worst is over.

Ah, yes,  the "Evans"  connection - there's often a clue - if only I look for it!  Thanks David!

I grow this Primula under the name Primula ┤Joan Hughes┤. It is a wrong name, as I can see. Can somebody tell me some comment to it, please?

Brian Burrow is visiting us just now and he thinks it looks like a seedling of 'Joan Hughes' called 'Fritzkummert' (not absolutely sure of the spelling)

I was just wondering if it might be one of Brian Burrow's hybrids..... Primula allionii BB 01/5/1   - colour is similar if not flower shape ? 

 If it's 'Fritz Kummert' that'll be the spelling.

What a lovely rich colour in Zdenek's Primula.

I've been looking at what we might have on the Forum for Primula 'Fritz Kummert'. The first is from Kendal in 2014 and George's (Veteren Vet) picture of a plant exhibited by Frank and Barbara Hoyle in Reply 71 http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=11525.msg299170#msg299170  Colour looks a possible match.

The second, another Veteren Vet picture (plant not attributed) from Blackpool in March 2013, Reply 60, again the colour looks about right
http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=6868.msg191925#msg191925

and by no means last a pic in Reply 59, from the late, and much missed, Johannes (Hans) Hoeller from 2009 with the plant shown looking much pinker to my eye.

Look at all that historical content available to all with the energy to look for it. You couldn't do that on Facetwit!  ;D
