Red Primrose? Probably an escapee.

How pretty! I love the raindrops on the flowers. What kind of flowers are they, please?

Apparently Polyanthus have a cluster of flowers on a stem and wild Primroses have one flower. Although the Primroses grow In my garden I haven't studied them, sometimes they pop up where I don't want them.

I see what you mean, Poet. About three years ago a solitary primrose/primula of 'regal purple' and yellow petals appeared in my back garden as if by magic. I have three or four from it, but they haven't really flourished. Here's hoping.
