Well, I thought that's what I grew in 2004. Turns out it was Cortusa matthiolii instead. More recent attempts have been only partly successful - one year I had seedlings, but they didn't survive the season; last year I once again raised seedlings, and had tiny plants to show for it this spring. The plantlets bloomed in early May, but don't look much like the glorious specimens featured on online sources, so either they take a while to develop their form and stature, or I've once again grown something different...

|Lili-Ann||Sep 21, 2005||Hello
The plant you call Primula cortusoides is wrong.
The photo is showing Cortusa matthioli.
As you have a referens to Maurees and Glen in Canada, you can see how the P.cortusoides looks like in their website.
Thanks Lili-Ann - sure looks like you're right on that count. I'll update my records.
- Seed from '03 trade. Baggy 70F with light (65%G, 6-10d). Don't survive long in baggy - transplant ASAP
- Seed from '05 trade. Baggy 70F with light (57%G, 7-15d)
- Same seed as above. Baggy 70F with light (55%G, 9-24d)
