“Red garden primula” was featured in the groups Amateur Art Photography and
Nature’s Wonders

This is a macro photo, taken with a Canon PowerShot S70 camera. The flowers are quite small, around 3-5 cm in diameter, if I remember correctly. This photo was taken in April 2006, in a special garden exhibition which took place in Paleis Het Loo, The Netherlands.

Primula is a genus of 400–500 species of low-growing herbs in the family Primulaceae. They include primrose, auricula, cowslip and oxlip. Many species are grown for their ornamental flowers. They are native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere, south into tropical mountains in Ethiopia, Indonesia and New Guinea, and in temperate southern South America.

Perennial primulas bloom mostly during the spring; their flowers can be purple, yellow, red, pink, or white. Generally, they prefer filtered sunlight. Many species are adapted to alpine climates.

The word primula is the Latin feminine diminutive of primus, meaning first (prime), applied to flowers that are among the first to open in spring.
