Thank you Alison. They flower better when they have had some frost but -27C might be too much. It would be for this grower!

Spectacular!  I find the yellow ones especially enchanting!

Thanks Lori. Funnily enough, of them all, I like the yellow ones best too.

David,

i always enjoy seeing your primulas as they are something that we'd have no hope of growing here - even if they were available!

cheers

Catching up, finally...

Primula algida and P. marginata (a young one) were the earliest; P. algida again in a more mature stage:

    

Primula elatior ssp. meyeri; an early Primula scotica; Primula x juliana 'Allure' (or so I think?) in an early stage, lots of bulb foliage interfering with it!

    

Primula polyneura, or  more likely a hybrid, I'm told, self-seeding: 

  

Primula veris, red; Primula veris 'Sunset Shades'; Primula 'Jay Jay'(?) with Hacquetia epipactis

     

Primula palmata; Primula yuparensis; Primula x allionii 'Aire Mist':

Primula lovers may be interested to read about the success of a trip to Bhutan in re-finding  Primula sherriffiae , 81 years after its only finding and introduction.

The team comprised  a number of SRGC members and recipients of SRGC Exploration Grants and were greatly helped by research done on the location by Pam Eveleigh of Primula World.  You can read more  here : http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=13349.0
