Mountain primula. This exquisite plant with its rings of pure white flowers and bright green leaves, is the most beautiful of the species, growing on mountainous parts of New Zealand sea level, 4500 feet.

Ourisia Macrophylla I found growing on Mount Egmont and the ranges. It has also been found on the Ruahine range and Upper Wairau. The plant from which these flowers were drawn was about three feet in height.

First discovered by Dieffenbach.
