Primula filipes

There are some very beautiful and easily grown woodland plants in this section, but the taxonomy is very confused. The species Primula obconica itself has several forms, and a lot of field work will be needed before it can be sorted out properly. In contrast, there are loads of cultivated varieties, covering a range that is as wide as that of polyanthus (and equally gaudy, in my opinion). The species make clumps of rounded leaves, usually quite hairy, and have stem with dens heads of flowers, usually in shades of pink.

Primula filipes is a neat plant, making a creeping clump of rounded, hairy leaves, and with equally hairy flower stems, bearing an showy umbel of ten or so pale pink flowers.
