Primula scotica is found wild only in Scotland, and is the only species of plant to claim that distinction, apart from some apomictic Sorbus. It is tiny; just little rosettes of grey-green leaves, and a short, upright stem with a few deep red-purple flowers with yellow eyes. It is usually monocarpic, but should be kept going from seed, provided you have several plants to ensure fertilisation. Well worth growing, and well worth and examining closely!
