David, the white Primula is a seedling of hirsuta (maybe x allionii) grown in my garden. The other white is a seedling, too.

I like them too but would like to see the names either written or instead of the camera image number

Mark, I will try it.
Most of my Primulas are nameless because they are grown from myself wild collected seed (allionii) or hybrids wild grown in my garden and so I do not always know their parents. All these plants are not selected and labelled Primulas which you can buy at any nursery.

A selection of pictures of some rather different primulas.  Firstly, from the alpinehouse:
Primula "Clarence Elliott" and P "Hyacinthia"

And from my shady cold frame a couple of Asiatics:
Primula nana alba
Primula jesoana (true species, ex Crug recent new introduction) newly emerging, making a pretence of being a Podophyllum.  Lets hope flowers will follow soon.

Lovely Primulas Diane. I was going to post a picture of my Clarence Elliott but, having seen yours I will wait a couple of days!!

Here is my Broadwell Violet.

Lovely pics and thanks. The P. nana alba is especially interesting. Very rare I imagine. And what a nice thing is P. podophyllioides:)

Some lovely Primulas at the AGS Kent show on 17th March.
Here are a few.
Primula Hallowen Blue ... THE LABEL SAID HALLOWEN not HALLOWEEN despite the discussion that follows!
Primula Clarence Elliott - Fantastic specimen
And an interesting pan of seedling primulas - the label explains all

I especially like `Halloween Blue.' It looks like one of those very tight growing Juliana types, with P. juliae in the mix somewhere.

The seedlings are very interesting. I've not had any seed on my `White Linda Pope' but my nursery chum down the road did, and raised a super white from it, crossed with an auricula type with very mealy foliage which is evident in some of these above. There's a lot of potential there for some good plants to come.

Lesley (at my peril) I have to disagree with you on "Halloween Blue", I don't like the flower at all it seems to me to move away from my ideal shape and nature of a Primula flower and might as well be a daisy :o

I'm also waiting for a batch of open pollinated seed from White Linda Pope to germinate. If I have seedlings as good as some of those TonyG pictured I shall be very pleased.

Diane,
like your P.vulgaris ssp. sibthorpii. Nice pale pink colour.
Was it raised from seed or can you recommend a specialist nursery?

Really, David?  Looks like pretty much typical primrose flower shape to me !

Maggi, too much space between the individual petals-or have I been reading too much detail about little white flowers with green spots!! ;D

David, you need rest, lie down and have a stiff gin and tonic, though, if I'm having one with you, I prefer G + lemonade!
