From Primula (J. Richards, 1993, new ed. 2003):
"Leaf-blades oblong-elliptic, to 20x4 cm, more or less entire, stalk obscure, bright green"; "stout stem bears 1-3 whorls of dark red to purple (rarely orange) flowers on erect stalks to 4 cm. The flower with strongly reflexed lobes is about 15 mm in diameter and annulate; corolla-lobes narrowly oblong, rounded"; distribution is "mountains of north-central China; Chihli, Shensi, Shansi; rather dry alpine meadows and shady rocks in fir forests at about 2500m".

Grows in part shade and leaf mould in zone 3.
