Primula rupicola has been separated out from a collection of plants that included both Primula rupicola and souliei, as well as hybrids. The flowers of rupicola are more flat-faced than those of souliei, several to each umbel, and are clear rosy pink - except that we have had a single plant with pure white flowers. A plant for a cool, moist place, probably in a pot rather than roughing it outside.
Small rosettes and several pink widely open flowers.
