Pity it clashes with the Aberdeen show.  Not possible to be in two places at once :-\

Love the Auricula Theaters - only learned about them from a friends blog a few years ago.

I got this hybrid Primula from a batch of P. veris 'Sunset Shades' seedlings of two years ago. I'll take more pictures if the rain stops, but I'm excited about it.

Ontario, zone 5

Primula reidii var. williamsii -with glorious scent.

Primula sheriffii -bizarrely beautiful with its long flower tube.

Primula ambita -Very rare in cultivation but not one to set the heather alight (in same group as P. obconica)

Primula amethystina -A difficult wee primula. This one had great promise until the flower was cooked, at least the plant survived.

And after a baking:

Omphalogramma vinciflorum -OK, not a primula but very close.

Primula tangutica -bizarre rather than bonny!
