I bought this plant in early April, in flower and it has been lovely ever since. I'm sure it must be 3 plants in the same small pot but I sure can't see where the division is. I want to know what it is so that I can put it outside for the summer and know if it will overwinter. It looks like a type of primula.

Here is a link that might be useful:

Watch out, some people get a rash on their skin from it. I had two friends who were florists that did when I was a florist. They aren't hardy outside during winter here but they are long blooming annuals if you deadhead.

Thanks for the ID, it really helps. It certainly has been a pretty plant to have in the house for these past few months, and is still blooming. Maybe the poison part is why primroses aren't eaten by deer.
