I hope this plant is also found planted in temperate climates of India.
Yet I am not sure of this identification, so please help in naming.

Primula species from Paddar valley J&K: Request for ID confirmation.
Kindly confirm the ID
Bot. name: Primula denticulata
Family: Primulaceae
Location: Paddar valley J&K
Date: 17th May 2012
Altitude: 3500 meters asl
Any possibility of Primula denticulata

Yes Primula denticulata
I hope Primula rosea.
I photographed both this and P. denticulata in Kashmir in May, this year, only two species flowering in subalpine and alpine region in May..
I doubt for Primula rosea,
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Himalayan%20Meadow%20Primrose.html  
In May I also visited the sub-alpine zone of my area for three days. In addition to these Primula species I also found Gentiana carinata, Colchicum luteum, Gagea lutea, Tussilago farfara, Adonis chrysocyathus, Trollius acaulis, Oxytropis lapponica, Iris, Rhodiola and some other species. I will post these on by one.
Yes Gentiana is very common in those altitudes in May. Gentiana carinata is reported but I found that flowers have distinct fringe in the throat, and I think that plant is G. coronata, especially in Gulmarg, Khillenmarg area.
This is Primula denticulata.
I love Primulas. Thanks for sharing.

Primula denticulata from Gulmarg, Kashmir: Primula denticulata Smith, Exot. Bot. 2: 109. 1806.  
Perennial herb with basal rosette of oblong to oblanceolate leaves, up to 15 cm long and 2-4 cm broad, elongating to 20 cm in fruit, margin denticulate, sometimes yellowish or white farinose beneath; petiole broadly winged; flowers mauve to pinkish-blue, in almost capitate umbel carried on up to 30 cm long scape; pedicel 1-5 mm long; calyx lobes oblong-lanceolate, often tinged purple; corolla tube 7-11 mm long, throat yellow, lobes obovate, emarginate; capsule subglobose, shorter than calyx.
Common in Gulmarg meadow Kashmir, photographed in May, alt. 2500 m
I presume these must come within Primula denticulata but I am far from certain as to the range of variation which exists within this species.  A species which has been recorded from Afghanistan to SE Tibet (and Myanamar) @ 1500-4500m, variation is inevitable.  Often hard to be sure about poorly developed forms or those in early growth. 
It is entirely possible that in the future when the genus is revised, variants will be recognised at the sub-species or even species level.  Richards has recognised Primula cachemiriana (syn. P.denticulata var. cachemiriana) as a separate species based upon a specimen in cultivation originating above Gulmarg @ 3700m at the edge of a stream - if the altitude recorded was correct, it must be above Khelanmarg.  The P.denticulata var. cachemiriana having been recognised since Hooker's day with pronounced meal.
The images taken by ... were from 2500m in the main part of Gulmarg itself.  Presumably on or near the Golf Course?
Hooker observed that the species was very variable separating var. paucifolia.

In Sikkim & Bhutan it is widespread in open damp meadows and flushes, marshy clearings in Oak, Pine & Spruce forests @ 1525 to 4100m flowering February to June.  I remember photographing a sizeable population when I was working in Bhutan in the 1990s which matches these images in terms of flower colour and general appearance of foliage.

Primula denticulata.
Beautiful upload.
Compact globular heads. Purple to mauvish blue flowers on a stout flowering stem.
Deeply bilobed petals. Leaves in compact rosette; oblong to oblanceolate; toothed, blunt, tapering to a broadly winged leaf stalk.

Primula denticulata from Himachal [Lahaul & Spiti; 3300 m asl]
Yes, the most common denizen of sub alpine and alpine Himalaya. Blooms immediately after snow melt, thanks to preformed inflorescences which shoot up as soon as snow thaws on slopes. At higher elevations share the habitats with Caltha palustris.
One more beautiful Primula.

Certainly Primula

Yes ... Trying for ID !
How about Primula denticulata?

Could not decide. Broad leaves!
To me also appear close to images at Primula denticulata 

Thank you ... I should take it as Primula denticulata Sm.

Primula denticulata Sm. is the most common Primula in alpine zones of Uttarakhand.
Shot in Kedarnath after a brisk snow fall in 1990s.
Seems that it is from your old records. Good one.

Plumbaginaceae and Primulaceae (incl. Myrsinaceae) Fortnight: Primula denticulata Sm. from Rohtang Pass, H.P. - PKS PRIM 004 : 3 posts by 3 authors.
Primula denticulata Sm. Exot. Bot. 2: 109 1806.
Family: Primulaceae
Lovely shot..
I presume these must come within Primula denticulata but I am far from certain as to the range of variation which exists within this species.  A species which has been recorded from Afghanistan to SE Tibet (and Myanamar) @ 1500-4500m, variation is inevitable.  Often hard to be sure about poorly developed forms or those in early growth. 
It is entirely possible that in the future when the genus is revised, variants will be recognised at the sub-species or even species level.  Richards has recognised Primula cachemiriana (syn. P.denticulata var. cachemiriana) as a separate species. 
Hooker observed that the species was very variable separating var. paucifolia.

Kindly ID this Primulaceae sp.
Place : Dhirang Valley, Arunachal Pradesh
Date : April 2014
Looks like P. denticulata.
It is very much Primula denticulata- a herb appearing during the process of Snow melt in temperate regions.

In Bhutan it is widespread in open damp meadows and flushes, marshy clearings in Oak, Pine & Spruce forests @ 1525 to 4100m flowering February to June.  I remember photographing a sizeable population when I was working in Bhutan in the 1990s-  these images seem to match.

This herb was observed along the last leg (c. 3000 m.) of our trek to Churdhar Peak.
Photographed on 26 May 2015.
Would appreciate any help with the specific id.
Very beautiful pics ...,
I think this can be Primula denticulata...
Many thanks, ..., for the prompt suggestion. Tallies well with P. denticulata.

MY FLORA PICTURE 2015 : 15 posts by 12 authors.
2015 was another year which gave me an opportunity to step into wilderness of mighty Himalayas. The programme was finalized, the team gathered at Panipat on May 22, 2015 to start a tour the next day. The flower hunting team was led by Dr. and Mrs. Gurcharan Singh with Dr. & Mrs. Gurdeep Singh Virdi from Delhi, Smita Raskar from Sawantwadi, myself and Dr. Balkar Singh from Panipat, Dr. Sunoj Kumar, Calicut, Mr. Viplav Ganger, Mumbai, Mr. Anurag Sharma, Ms. Medha Rao and Ms. Smitha Ramesh from Bengaluru. We had a stay for one night at Renuka Ji, a beautiful place in foothills. The next day tour ended up in a beautiful place amidst pines and deodars, the Mata Bhangyani Temple in Haripurdhar. We had the midway plant exploration and refreshment halts, all thoroughly enjoyable. 
At the next stay point, Nauradhar, which formed our base camp for the next days, Dr. Anil Thakur joined the team. From here, the trekking towards Choordhar peak started early morning. Our senior most members joined us for initial few hours, and started back before noon. Out of nine members, me and Smita Ji took different path, unaware of the fact that we won't be able to converge before 7 km. We could get together only at Jamnala (Doosri) in the afternoon, where 7 members were waiting with refreshment, which was much needed. Smita Ji, Aunrag, Smitha and Medha decided to stay there for one night (which was a very wise decision indeed), to come back the next day. 
Five of us started up trekking after 2:00 pm. This was really tough climb but we enjoyed it all and we reached Teesri at around 5:30 pm. We were spellbound on seeing high altitude flora especially Rhododendrons from the corner of a sharp cliff taking a semi-circular turn after Teesri. That was a quite a different world there, alpine floral elements started appearing. The path we took was a longer route, but supposed to have a gradual climb, instead of sharp edges from the other way. The things were not going to be as smooth as we assumed at first. 
The problems started soon after we reached a point, lying ahead was a vast glacier, which we had not expected. It was long and slippery, and left us undecided for a while, what to do? The first glacier was crossed, with fear and terror (thanks to bamboo sticks in hand), we had a sigh of relief, but that was not the last hurdle. Many small  glaciers came our way, there was trouble in breathing, a really serious cause of concern. Darkness aggravated, skidding could happen, glaciers started reappearing more vigorously.
Air was getting diluted of oxygen, daylight was almost gone, energy getting down, and still no sign of our destination anywhere around.  I was (may be all of us) repenting on the decision to complete the trek in one day, we could have stayed at Teesri. To further worsen the things, rain and snow started falling, thunder and lightening joined, it got absolutely dark, still no sign of the place we were supposed to reach. We tried to console each other regarding the distance remaining to be covered, though no one was certain. We could not afford to loose hope and kept on leaping through snow, mud, darkness and silence. Finally we saw a few people with torches way up, assuring us that we have not lost our way. Ultimately, we reached the place, shivering and wet, tired and trembling with hunger. We got the meals as per tradition of the place, and a very good stay (for which I am grateful to Sh. Babu Ram, Manager, Sewa Samiti, Choordhar).
Now I come to my Flora Picture of the year-2015. In the morning, when we started back trek, through the temple, I saw a strange yellow coloured flower (as it appeared from distance). I got near and saw this in curiosity. This took me quite a while, and observing few more individuals in advanced stages, to understand that this is the "Ice Breaking Primrose" which pierces through the snow. I thought this is apt picture for me to share as FLORA PICTURE of 2015.   
Fantastic narration. Reminds me of that great Novel by R.L.Stevenson's Treasure Island. Your finding the 'Ice breaker' is like an icing on the cake. A great expedition...!
Superb narration and good find...
Thanks, ..., Really difficult situation to be in.
Reminds of a similar trek journey with my elder brother (on his first Himalayan trek) while returning from Pindari Glacier.
We decided to skip the stay at one trekkers hut & aimed for the next one. We had a similar experience made worse by an old injury in my brothers leg.
What is the botanical name ?
Thanks for the nice words of appreciation
... I hope the species should be Primula denticulata..!!
Thanks for sharing your experience with us! 
Your plant reminded me of my earlier post which remained unidentified
Looks somewhat similar. Your opinion please.
 ... fantastic reportage; thrilling, gripping !!
The ice-breaking climax wonderful !!
Thank you so very much for your narrative, adventurous excursion. It should prove inspirational for all the out door worker and field botanists. I convey my sincere regards to you and all in the team.
Very well narrative indeed,
A nice itinerary of high altitudes of the Himalaya in early season. Thanks for sharing these moments with all of us here in eFI.
Primulas, particularly this P.denticulata is one of the early flowers blooming immediately after snow melt. While in similar situations in the Himalaya I have also seen it practically emerging out of thin snow cover. Flowers are already formed in the end of last year growing season and buds unfold early to avoid competition for pollinators and space. Later in rainy season the plants are difficult to locate as they are covered by other herbage.
This story brings me back to Himalayan high altitudes! Compels me to think once again "where to go this year in summers?"
Beautiful picture, Beautiful narration as well Nidhan all of it came alive in front of my eyes 
I remembered we found orchid Cephalanthera longifolia & Calathe tricarinata on the way  
Though quite tired , it was amazing trek through beautiful forest 
and how much i wish, i could complete the trek though it was impossible for me 
I wish we will go for many more treks in Mighty Himalaya 
I thankfully acknowledge the responses of our respected members ...
Hope to get enough courage and energy for more such outings to many many wonderful places which remain unvisited by me...
And thanks ... for elaborating the Himalayan floral secrets, gathered through your practical experience...
 ..., having gone through your post, I think that can also be same species...
What an extraordinary effort... at more than 12000 feet above sea level... no wonder glaciers and difficulty in breathing...
A keen observation... and those of us seating at sea-level  do appreciate this rare moment...and greatly appreciate the generosity of your sharing of the story and the flowering plants.
Great.

And finally this primula. Although I have seen other primroses here but this was new to me. A fine and productive day then with three new species for me! I have some gentians to confirm too but that will have to wait till I have some energy to edit and research.

Very beautiful display of this wonderful wild beauty..!! thanks ...
Thanks, ..., for complete depiction of all parts of the plants.
primulas as nature intended. this spring at the garden of five senses in delhi i saw soooo many cultivars and colors of these...
makes we wonder why is the human being not satisfied what we have. you have shown its beauty as it was designed
I presume these must come within Primula denticulata but I am far from certain as to the range of variation which exists within this species.  A species which has been recorded from Afghanistan to SE Tibet (and Myanamar) @ 1500-4500m, variation is inevitable.  Often hard to be sure about poorly developed forms or those in early growth.  

It is entirely possible that in the future when the genus is revised, variants will be recognised at the sub-species or even species level.  Richards has recognised Primula cachemiriana (syn. P.denticulata var. cachemiriana) as a separate species.   

Hooker observed that the species was very variable separating var. paucifolia.


Thank you ... I found another plant at about 2000m today photos of which I will share soon.
I was happy to find these primulas out in good numbers on my walk on Sunday. Following ... advice and to show the features more closely I made these images. Whatever little I have learnt since my post last year points me to P. denticulata but again I cannot be sure. Please advise.
The individual flowers are about 1.5cm across and the globe about 5-6cm. Stalks are covered in yellow farina but only some leaves underneath. Sepals are finely toothed.

Primula denticulata, hopefully
I would appreciate a confirmation if possible
we saw this near Duggalbitta Uttarakhand
at an altitude of about 7,500 feet
in the first week of may 2018

I guess ID is correct.

it looks very close to the images at
including the color of sepals in a dried flower but I am hesitating to id this. I would much appreciate an identification if at all possible. we saw just below the the temple at Tunganath at an altitude of about 12,000 feet in the first week of may 2018

Seems to be Primula denticulata.

I guess more close to your guess ...
Many thanks for the identification suggestions. I will try and read more about both of them

We do not have single identified post on Primula atrodentata W. W. Smith so far.
As per the given link from Primal World:
Can be difficult to tell from small forms of P. denticulata but distinguished by being evergreen, lacking basal bud scales (but may have the remains of old foliage at the base) and by having a white eye
Thus the posted images as well as images on FOI page are of Primula denticulata only.
I request ... to pl. correct on FOI site.

Thank you ... for bringing this up. I read that too, these flowers clearly have yellow eyes. So this seems to be P denticulata.

Corrected in FOI also. 

Thanks to all for the efforts to bring correctness.
