    Around Christmas time I was at Lowe's looking over their seriously neglected CP. Most were dead or very close to it. There was one Ping. that still had a little life left in it, so I bought it and nursed it back to health. It has since put up a couple of flowers and has one more on the way. I thought for sure it was P. primulflora, but the flower is completely white with no laveder highlights. Is there a white flowered form of P. primulflora or does Lowes carry another species.

    Hey Jason (oh yeah, Happy b-day!)

    My primuliflora also brought up white flowers...at first. It should start turning lavender over the next few days. If it doesn't - then maybe you have a cool new mutation!

    Take a look at the bottom of Eric's P. primuliflora page. He shows the white flower form.

    That is so cool, Jason! How lucky you are to have a white-flowered Pinguicula !
