Primula florindae

Primula florindae Kingdon-Ward (Tibet) – An exceptional garden escape or throw-out. Discovered in 2010 in woodland in Beringen (Koerselse Heide) in a rather remote locality.

There are rather few records of Primula florindae in the wild in western Europe, although its escape may have been neglected so far. It is known from several, widely scattered localities in the British Isles (Stace 2010).
