Primula florindae is easy, in a damp place. In a soggy area of our garden that we call a lawn we mow these primulas, which survive but don't grow very tall! Elsewhere, they can grow to a magnificent 120 cm or more tall, and have one (occasionally two) whorls of flowers on short spreading or hanging pedicels (stems), sometimes a hundred or more, with a lovely scent. Most have soft yellow flowers (the Tibetan cowslip) or are a pale orange, but others can be quite a bright red. This catalogue entry represents a mixture of the usual yellow or orange forms.
One or two large umbels of scented, pale yellow or orange flowers.
