This is one of the most beautiful of the elatior-tribe of Primroses. It has the compact tufted habit of all the breed. The flowers are large, about the same size, and fringed in the way of a good type of China Primrose, bright gold in the centre, and shading into clear Primrose yellow on the margin. They are supported on stout stalks high above the foliage in great profusion, and are very fragrant. It is a beautiful plant for spring bedding, being very showy and effective in masses at a distance, and withal neat. For pot-culture, for the purpose of greenhouse decoration early in spring, it is very desirable, as it bears forcing very well, and lasts a considerable time in bloom.
