I recently received this plant from a Dutch nursery, but I am unsure if it really is P.recubariensis. My reason for doubt is that it's quite 'pink', and it doesn't really smell much of anything. It's less than one inch high and is flowering now. Thankyou for your help, Giles
Primula recubariensis is variable in colour and is very similar to P. tyrolensis (and, of course, to P.allionii), so it is quite difficult to be certain about your tiny plant ... from the shape of the pot I suspect that this may have originated from Gerd Stopp's nursery (he does list P. recubariensis).
