This section has just two species, Primula capitata and P. glomerata, which have quite tight tufts of leaves, grey-green with their covering of farina. The deep purple heads of flowers form spheres or partial spheres at the tops of the slender stems, contrasting with the dense white farina that covers all other parts of the inflorescence.
|Primula capitata is a collection from Nepal of this species, with dense, round heads of deep purple flowers.|
