This is a nice-looking bellflower with mauve flowers.

Please note: this plant is very critically endangered in the wild (see http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/bgbm/will/2011/0000004...).

The young leaves are crinkled and decidedly primula -like.

Germination advice: These seeds need light to germinate: cover potting compost with a thin layer of vermiculite then a " layer of grit. This gives a good basis for seedling growth and then sprinkle the seeds over the grit and wash them in with a fine spray. Germination takes a couple of weeks in the greenhouse, on a windowsill, or in a (not too) shady spot, depending on the season to give a germination temperature of 20C/70F.
