A vigorous pinkish selection of the species (which grows in a small area on the French-Italian border on shady limestone cliffs where the water seeps down). Strangely it will tolerate life in a pot for many people. I have failed repeatedly, though I think I have made different mistakes each time. It has been with me for a couple of years this time so it is possible that I have started to exhaust the opportunities for stupidity, or it may all be down to luck.

Philip Bankhead at Peninsula Primulas says:

"This is a truly lovely and strong growing variety. It flowers early (February), and the foliage can be completely hidden by the masses of pale pink flowers. Cold greenhouse culture is needed."
