Primula stenodonta

Primula stenodonta is related to Primula poissonii, and the taxonomy is confused, but it is a splendid addition to the candelabra primulas. It has whorls of very bright, rich pink flowers, with a darker pink stripe along each petal and with a yellow eye to the flower. It flowers a week or so earlier than P. poissonii, and has larger flowers on arching, longer pedicels, so the total impact is greater. There are other differences, including the lack of a significant notch in each petal and the details of the leaf shape.

Like poissonii; whorls of larger, bright deep pink flowers on arching pedicels.
