I would just like to point out that the lovely plant illustrated anonymously in the on-line show in the asiatic primula section is not P.bhutanica but its hybrid P. 'Arduaine'. This is an important distinction as 'Arduaine' is sterile but P.bhutanica is seed-fertile (although only pin-flowered) and must be pollinated and grown from seed if the line is to continue. I wonder if the true P. bhutanica is grown in New Zealand? If anybody in NZ thinks they have got it, compare images in www.primulaworld.com and then post a picture here!
