Like a tiny snow capped purple mountain.

  Very cool and refreshing on this hot day here. 

How old is it?

Thanks Cohan! The rosettes (I have ca 12 plants) are about 15cm in diameter and the peduncles are 10cm when the flowers start to open and elongate to 20cm.

Rick, I planted the seed spring 2011 and the seedlings overwintered outside last winter.

A little sweetie, Dave! It is on my wish-list!

Here's another of the Primula capitata seedlings from Chadwell seed. Picture taken today.

That capitata is a beauty Trond! I can grow them here but they don't last long. I'm down to one plant after 2 shriveled up in the hot, dry summer. Save seed if you get it! And thanks for your seed donation to the APS!!

Thanks Amy, I will save seed if they ripen but probably it is too late in the fall. (It was just one collection :-\)
