Plumbaginaceae and Primulaceae (incl. Myrsinaceae) Fortnight: Primulaceae-Primula x polyantha cultivar from Kashmir-GSJUN29 : 3 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3).
Primula x polyantha? cultivar with red flowers with yellow center, photographed from Srinagar, Kashmir.

it is a hybrid species of primula now identified as P. fever

I don’t think P. fever is ever published binomial (Neither IPNI, nor The Plant List).

A reply from , Creator of Primula World – A Visual Reference for the Genus Primula :
Hybrid of garden origin



Primula Species For ID : Srinagar : 16JUN16 : AK-27 : 10 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (3)
Another cultivated Primula Species from Srinagar.

Primula species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 

These are hybrid species (Primula vulgaris)

This should be common primrose (Primula Vulgaris) http://floridata.com/Primula%20vulgaris/1100 or its close cultivar.

Primula Species seen in Kodaikanal, in Oct 2008.

A cultivated, ornamental, potted plant.
Had posted on our group earlier.
… had suggested it could be Primula Species, possibly P. vulgare.
… had suggested common name as Primrose.

You have displayed the photographs of Primula species both the plants are hybrid one is Primula alloni (hybrid) and another two photographs are P. Vulgare hybrids

Thanks for a possible id of my pictures.
Pictures in this post are of the same plant, not two different plants.
Primula alloni on searching, doesn’t look anywhere near my pictures.

Could this be Primula X polyantha?

Well, I hesitate much…. can it be hybrid of Primula veris L.? A note can be found in FoNA introduction page – http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=126719.

A reply from , Creator of Primula World – A Visual Reference for the Genus Primula :
Hybrid of garden origin (polyanthus). P. allionii is not involved.”

This could be the correct link.http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/53116/#b
