Boy that looks familiar, J. Can you give a bit more info? It looks like it is about 2ft tall? When was it in bloom? Houston has a lot of tropicals that bloom in winter.

It reminds me of a primula a bit, but something isn't quite spot on about that....I will keep chewing on it and maybe remember where I saw it before...grin

I agree Nice one Lin! I tried to check the southeastern flora site but it wasn't working.
