I breed a lot of summer flowering hybrids including primulinus. It is true that you can flower some prims from seed in the first year but the flowers tend to be immature with only a few buds. Second year sees spikes of 16-20 buds. The grandiflora hybrids mostly need two, rarely three years to flower from seed.
