I obtained this, as a small plant from a nursery in Scotland last year. It was labelled as P. amethystina.
It was from wild collected seed. It had thick leathery leaves, olive green last year, died back to resting bud over Winter, and as growth recommenced, the leaves had a heavy coating of farina.
I don't grow this pretty primula myself, but I know some folks who do! Margaret and Henry Taylor: they exhibited the plant at Perth SRGC show the other week.... it is Primula yuparensis
