Primulus verisThe Cowslip – is a flowering plant in the genus Primula of the family Primulaceae. It is native throughout most of temperate Europe & Asia. The species name ‘veris’ means ‘of spring’. Other folk names include; cuy lippe, herb peter, pangle, peggle, key flower, key of heaven, fairy cups, petty mulleins, crewel, buckles, palsywort, & plumrocks. Found on open ground including, open fields, meadows, coastal dunes and cliff tops. Agricultural practises in the 1970’s and 80’s caused a drastic decline, although the plants are making a recovery especially on landscaped motorways and similar civil engineering earthworks where they are included in wildflower seeding. They grow to 25 cms tall and broad, with a rosette of leaves 5-15 cms long and 2-6 cms broad. The deep yellow flowers are produced in the spring in clusters of 10-30 blooms together on a single stem. Each flower is 9-15 cms broad. – Wikipedia
