Primuls (vulgaris?) from Stefan's Azerbaijan trip
They look quite a bit different than they did last year. The leaves seem to have tightened up a bit outdoors; perhaps they were a smidge etiolated in the polyhouse? I'm no expert on the genus, quite the opposite, but these look a lot like what I know as Primula vulgaris, which makes a certain amount of sense. The range does extend as far east as Azerbaijan. Still, I'll wait for a voice of greater authority.
