A candelabra type which we found growing in a high boggy meadow in Sichuan in October 2012 where it mingled with other Primula species, Gentiana sino-ornata in bloom and hummocks of dwarf Rhododendron.  This had small seed capsules with short pedicels closely set  in whorls on the scape reminiscent of Primula wilsonii.  We have now flowered here at the nursery and see that it is a good form of Primula poissonii with large magenta flowers in tiers on the tall stems.  We had previously offered this as a candelabra Primula species.  Fairly sun tolerant if given ample moisture or tolerant of what passes for sun here in the maritime Northwest.
