Primula Veris (Cowslip)

Primula Veris (Cowslip)

Our native yellow cowslip

From mid to late spring, scented, deep yellow flowers emerge from rosettes of mid-green leaves and hang in delicate clusters on erect stems. This much-loved cowslip is undemanding and will naturalise easily, forming wonderful colonies on moist soil. It is perfect for a wildflower garden or meadow.
