Maybe That's Why They Call Them Primroses ?
This is Primula yuparensis, a little alpine primrose from Japan. I just planted this last spring, so this is its first real year in the garden, and I always like to check everything out by getting my face, and especially my nose, right down there. Unfortunately, to my nose, this little beauty's flowers have a faint odor of stale urine. Oh well.
