Description: Corolla a pale yellow green rather more yellow than green (colour near 222). Tube ppurple. Calyx dull dark red green. The most fragrant primula I have ever seen. The tube is only seen on some specimens owing to the long calyx & the claws being reflexed back on to it. The back of many leaves is distinctly purple though most are green.
