These polyanthus primroses vary in color from deep rose to soft pink.  There's no telling what yours might be, but whatever shade of pink, you can't help but be pleased.  These primroses grow from 6 to 8 inches tall in moist, well-drained soil, and in partial shade.  They bloom in late winter to mid-spring and are an ideal candidate for the border, woodland, or even a pot.   Zones 3-8.  My own photo is not yet available, but here is one that is remarkably like one of the pinks of this seed-strain group.  (Photo by James Petts from London, England, CC BY-SA 2.0 <>, via Wikimedia Commons)
