The photo shown here is Primula auricula... (which I see the Catalogue of Life now wants to lump into Primula marginata...)

Primula auriculata is a different species, and many photos can be seen below at the Primula World site:
(NB. The photos for this species at the site match the description in John Richards' Primula, which I can summarize here if you'd like more information.)

Would you mind asking to have the photo moved please?
By the way, the other info at the entry for Primula auriculata also actually applies to Primula auricula (e.g. the "Bear's Ear" common name).
