Primula Vulgaris

Primula Vulgaris by Sudipto Sarkar on Visioplanet

This is another picture from the flower garden in Ramoji Film City (from back when they did allow tele lenses)… This one being a Primula Vulgaris. Why the epithet is vulgaris is beyond me though.

I tried a lot to find what species these flowers are from, but after a lot of describing it, I remembered Google had a reverse image search. That got me the answer away pretty quickly. It’s a Primrose (the first time I’d heard of a Primrose was in the Hunger Games). I believe this particular flower is from the subspecies sibthorpii, which is found in South-east Asia.

This is part of my Ramoji Film City series.
