Primula cortusoides

Primula cortusoides is a name under which the plants formerly known as Primula cortusoides and Primula saxatilis have been brought together. One is from the Urals and western Siberia and the other from far eastern Siberia and northern China. They make clumps of long-stemmed, slghtly hairy leaves, with rather tall, slender flower stems carrying typically six to twelve starry, bright rose pink flowers in a loose umbel. This will do well in a partly shaded place, with soil that drains well.

Loose umbels of bright rose-pink flowers over hairy leaves.
