I saw this primula at a nursery. Unfortunately it did not contain a plant label ID. A label on the pot said primrose. I wish every plant contained an informative label but often they do not. The foliage resembled Primula malacoides as did the blossoms but the bloom was larger and on a shorter bloom stalk. Any idea? I could add the pictures to the general primrose entry but would prefer to ID it.

Paul: I'm really bad about comparing photo's but how about: Polyanthus Primrose (Primula elatior subsp. elatior)

Thanks for the guess Lin. I am familiar with Polyanthus and this one is different.
