Robust Japanese selection of this revered Primrose species with sumptuous pale-faced flowers breezed with the lightest smoke of lavender-pink. The backsides of the flowers are more intensely colored borrowing perhaps on the evolutionary success of flamboyant backsides across a wide range of species.  Whenever we watch Nature on PBS and there are male Mandrills in full display, Kelly feels cheated, inadequate and frustrated being a monochromatic species until Sue says "Honey, it was your inner Mandrill that I fell in love with".  Hardy zone 4 to 8b.
