Recent New Primula Species (2018)

The New Year is a good time to reflect on what is new in Primula. There has only been one new species discovered this year:
Primula luteoflora
Primula luteoflora X.F.Gao & W.B.Ju - A new Davidii species with yellow flowers similar to P. epilosa and P. wawushanica. From near Mupin in Baoxing county, Sichuan.

In Addition, a new variety was described: Primula bullata Franch. var. delavayi D.W.H. Rankin. This is a robust variation, up to 70cm tall with up to 60 flowers per scape.

Happy New Year and Best Wishes to All in 2019!
