    I bought a Ping. from Lowes about 3 months ago and its finally blooming and the flower bud apears to be white. I thought it was Pinguicula primuliflora. Is it possible that it is and ablino? Does anyone have albino pings?

    New primuliflora flowers tend to have less color than older flowers. Sometimes they appear white early on.

    I agree with CP2K, young Pinguicula primuliflora flowers can look white. Even when mature, the flowers are only pink from the front side of the corolla.
