I just bought this plant at Home Depot, it had no tag but looked similar to the plant I have 20 of already called the Lewisia "Elise" Lewisia cotyledon.
Since bringing it home, I noticed that the leaves are different.more rounder than the Lewisia.

Does anyone know what this plants name is?

I'd go for Primula

Do you mean that it is an Annual Primrose?

I have perennial Primrose in my garden and they don't look like this plant.

Sorry. Misread your post. I still think it is Lewisia.

The leaves look like primula to me as well. There are many varieties of perennial primrose.

Have a look at pics of Primula bulleyana, P beesiana, and P bulleesiana (the latter is supposedly a hybrid of the other two) - all have that "candelabra" type of flower.

The flowers, as far as I can see them, look like Lewisia. Can you show a clearer shot of them? That's what I assumed it was before I even read the message.

Yes, I agree, I do believe it is a Lewisia type of plant because I have about 25 of them. This one just had different leaves. As soon as I can, I will get another picture of it. I am not at home right now to take it.
Be getting back.
