Primula obconica subsp. werringtonensis Muli form

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 obconica subsp. werringtonensis Muli form is a wild form of a species that is well known as a cultivated plant, but relatively little known in the wild. This variety comes from relatively high altitudes, and is a neat plant, making a clump of rounded, hairy leaves, and with equally hairy flower stems, bearing an showy umbel of ten or so flowers, which are very bright pink in this form.
