Who will be auricula #106?

Last night Rich asked me to guess how many different Primula auricula cultivars we have in the cold frames in the garden. I guessed about 50, but it turns out the answer is 105. So he made a table of them as they are today. They have some fabulous names as you can see in the chart below. I wonder what the next one in our list will be called?

It all started because we are musicians with a garden full of Primula auricula flowers…

Our album, The Auricula Suite is a set of songs telling a re-imagined story of a historical journey to a new land. Inspired by folk tales of the alpine flower – the Primula auricula – and its 16th century journey to England with the Huguenot refugees, it is a tale of love and loss, persecution and a new beginning.
