Artist's Description

Named after the French missionary and etnologist Pere Vial who visited China in the 19th century, the pagoda primrose ( Primula vialii ), to me is among the most striking of this flower group. Vivid red flower buds (the calyces, or sepals) erupt into delicate lavender blossoms, all held high on a single stalk.
