Primula sieboldii 'Lacy Lady', a nice picotee

This is growing beside the stone stairway in the middle of China Valley. It appreciates the extra water that flows by when the stairs are doubling as a dry stream bed. We have a number of cultivars of this species of relatively recent acquisition. In spite of my feverish dividing a few years back, some of the clumps are getting enough size to be impressive. Though they don't appreciate the heat and drought of our summers, they just go dormant and seem to always come back larger the next year.
