Flora of Chakrata 2012: Primula floribunda: This one was shot from Chakrata-Budher road on May 17, 2012. This one is Primula floribunda Wall.


Correctly identified. Flowers of the Himalaya record this from Afghanistan to West Nepal on damp shady cliffs @ 800-2000m. The only Primula to be found at these elevations. Collet found this near water or under damp rocks at Shimla – flowering Jan to December Other sources say from Khyber Pass to extreme south-West Nepal in humid rivers & waterfalls.
I first came across it by a small waterfall in the hot Sutlej en route to Baspa Valley, Kinnaur.

This lovely rock Primula was shot from Dehradun-Mussoorie Road… can this be Primula floribunda…??


It is Primula floribunda.

Yes this species is commonly distributed in entire Uttarakhand.
Here it is in dry rocky slope (wall actually) but also quite common on shady moist rocky slopes.


Thanks for that information … I am thinking it signals the coming of spring.

I found these growing on a stone wall next to a water body I know well. I had spotted something yellow from a distance and thinking of Yellow Flax approached the area only to be pleasantly surprised. A new flower for me this year. A few notes:

A few notes:

Flowers odourless, ca. 12mm across, 10mm tall, sepals hairy reaching more than halfway up the corolla tube, pedicels 1-1.5cm, leaves in basal rosettes 3.5cm x 5cm. No farina under the leaves but hairs along the veins. Flowers appeared to be both pin-type and thrum-type.

Surely it is Primula floribunda.. Looks elegant, though flowers are small, yet bunching compensates.. Thanks … for sharing..
