The primrose is the classic Irish spring wildflower of woodlands and other places of dappled shade.
This one was photographed on a tuft of grass in the middle of a stream in Drumlamph Wood, County Derry.
Each pale yellow primrose flower has its own leafless hairy stem. The common name literally means “first rose” and indeed the primrose flowers appear early in Spring before most of the trees around it are in leaf.
Its botanical name is: “Primula vulgaris”.
