I just got a freebie of a packet of primula florindae seeds - from the sound of it, my garden's way too dry for them to thrive here. I'd be glad to mail them to anybody who wants them.

Margap,

I would love to receive your seeds. I have an area that is constantly wet. Can I send you postage via paypal?

Margap,

I read some more about Primula florindae. I suspect our climate is too warm. Wouldn't want the plants to die from heat exhaustion...

Primula florindae survives reasonably well here in a dry (16" annual precipitation), zone 3 climate so I certainly wouldn't write it off.
Unless you're basing your comments on experience with other similar primrose species, the most reliable info would come from growing it yourself to see how it does in your conditions...

Oh, ok, I'll try it then. No, I wasn't basing my comments on experience, just on information on the internet. Thanks, Alta.
