A beauty. I grew some of these from seed a long while ago - I had forgotten. I'll have to try again. Thank you for the reminder!

I too grew these a long while ago, but they died off because my soil dries out in summer. These are new from seed, I'm keeping in the pond margins so they don't dry out.

I had bought, last year, a packet of unnamed small, mixed cottage garden seeds for fun. They germinated and I put them into pots in the Autumn. This summer I realised some were primulas but not sure which sort. Imagine my surprise TODAY when I went to water them, quite by coincidence, they have flowered and I now have a batch of 6 new florindae. You must have conjured them up. Now all I need is the boggy patch...

Oh, lucky you. I wouldn't have called Primula florindae a cottage garden plant.
I've got some reddy ones with yellow inside the petals, not fully open yet.
