Primula secundiflora

Primula secundiflora looks like a member of the Sikkimensis section, with a couple of whorls of flowers, each with a short stem, so that the flowers hang down. But it is in the candelabra (Proliferae) section, and its (rare) hybridising habits confirm that this is correct. It has evergreen rosettes of quite small leaves, and upright stems with red-pink flowers and distinctive dark/light striped calyces. These are seed-raised plants from garden stock.

Candelabra section, with whorls of red-pink flowers.
