Primula rusbyi

Primula rusbyi comes from around 3000 m in New Mexico and Arizona, states that are dry and hot in summer at lower altitudes. It is deciduous,and does not appear until one fears that it has gone for ever. Then it rapidly produces its mealy leaves and the stems carrying half a dozen or more large, bright red-pink, yellow-eyed flowers. We grow it under glass, but it is reputed to do well outside, well watered but also well drained.

Mealy leaves and large, bright red-pink yellow-eyed flowers; American.
