Primula jigmediana was originally collected on the Me La in Bhutan, but has since been seen growing in Arunachal Pradesh. This species has a corolla with patent limbs, resulting in a funnel shaped flower. Other distinguishing features are that the mauve-blue flowers are solitary, have a dark wine-purple annulus and are shortly pedicelled. Flowers are held on 2-4cm, wirey stems. The leaves are glabrous, efarinous, spathulate to oblanceolate, rounded at the apex, bluntly dentate at the margins and have a winged petiole.
