Primula kewensis is a hybrid of Primula floribunda and Primula verticillata that is fertile, and has been regarded by some people as a new species. Like all the members of its section, it has large, spiky-toothed leaves, well covered in farina. The robust flower stems have several whorls of bright yellow, fragrant flowers and prominent spiky bracts. Under glass, in an alpine house or greenhouse, it makes an attractive and showy specimen.
