Hi, yes definitely cape primrose, lovely colour purple. It looks like it’s getting leaf burn from direct sun, mine like a bright but not sunny spot, and they don’t enjoy getting a soggy bottom (standing permanently in water) or being watered from the top as this can damage the leaves. It seems to prefer drying out quite a bit then I let it stand for half an hour or so in water(rain water if poss) drain out any excess and pop back in its pot. Sounds fussy but it’s so beautiful and there are endless varieties, you’ll find websites for collectors and some of the colours are incredible. Good luck ????
