Primula subalpina (Eastw.) Mast & Reveal
Habit: Plant glabrous, +- red except leaf blades; roots +- red, rice-like bulblets many. Stem: 10--20 cm. Leaf: 3--10 cm; blade oblanceolate, tapered to petiole, entire. Inflorescence: 1--5-flowered. Flower: corolla lobes generally 5--9 mm, magenta to white; filament tube 2--3.5 mm, anthers 3--4 mm, connective smooth (to longitudinally wrinkled when dry) or transversely wrinkled, maroon to black; stigma +- not enlarged. Fruit: circumscissile. Chromosomes: 2n=66.
Ecology: Moist places, often shaded; Elevation: 2100--4000 m. Bioregional Distribution: c&s SNH. Flowering Time: Jun--Aug Note: Evidently a high elevation ecotype, but possibly more appropriately treated as a variety of Primula hendersonii, for which the name Dodecatheon hendersonii var. yosemitanum H. Mason is available to serve as the basionym of a combination in Primula.
Synonyms: Dodecatheon subalpinum Eastw.; Dodecatheon hendersonii A. Gray var. yosemitanum H. Mason
