Damon did this cross ten years ago and it’s been a favorite of his ever since it bloomed for the first time! We love the little lavender flowers with white throats because they look so much like they’re southeastern cousin, Pinguicula primuliflora. They’re constantly making cheerful little flowers that look like they should be lining a woodland path.
These are not in tissue culture and are a limited release! There are several clones in this batch all with very similar flowers and the same parentage from the original seed cross.
