notes:Primula scotica, Hook. Common in sandy pasture on the Links of Dunnet, Caithness. I send specimens collected by me on 1st May 1880, which have each one flower-scape, and have flowered once this year. I also send specimens collected by Miss M.M. Brock on 12th, 13th and 14th July 1880, which have each two scapes, one in fruit, the other in flower. In May 1880, in company with Miss Brock, I visited the locality; we marked twelve plants, each of whch had one scape in flower. During the year my friend observed and recorded the progress made by these plants; on the 5th July the flower-scapes of May were in fruit, and seven of the plants in flower for the second time; by 16th August the flower-scapes of July were in fruit, and two of the plants had flowered a third time. Thus, of the twelve plants observed five flowered once, five twice and two thrice. H. Halcro Johnson.
