Primulina liboensis is a compact plant with broad roundish leaves and very attractive purplish/lavender flowers with yellow in the throat. This beautiful plant was shown at the March, 2006, show of the Toronto Gesneriad Society.

Like many Primulinas, this species is somewhat variable. One cultivar has veins distinctly marked in silvery white, and it has been shown as a fine foliage specimen.
