The blue one was called Poker Primrose when I got it from Spring Garden in a plant order one year. *I labelled the two pix in Photobucket but u wouldn't know that without checking the file names. :oops: lol*

The two different red Primula and the vanilla coloured one *not shown* were planted from seed. What names of Primula??? They were planted so far back that I'd have to find my Garden Journal in Notebook . . . the three ring variety of notebook.

The 'other' Primrose . . . the plant that I have wild here is identical to the yellow flowered plant yr showing Smitty . . . the oenothera. I always called that Evening Primrose. I have nooooo idea where I got that name so I could easily be wrong.

It's a great plant too for an interesting reason. The minute the first leaves come out of the ground in the Spring they're an easily identified purple colour. In fact, I think that thru the Winter they never quite loose those strange coloured leaves. It makes them real easy to spot and weed around in the Spring.
