Primulina subrhomboidea is a Chinese species that tolerates quite cold temperatures in winter, if good drainage is provided. Under seasonal conditions, the plant produces a substantial crown of blooms in spring when warmer temperatures arise. It can be readily grown indoors, without seasonal variation, and produces beautiful flowers but somewhat more sparsely than in a seasonal spring flush.
