Grew this from traded seed labeled Primula saxicola, but that doesn't appear to be an actual species - it may be P. saxatilis instead. Very cheerful in mid-spring. Primroses don't tend to last long in our garden, so I'm encouraged that this one at least came back for a second year.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
