English Cowslip is a very hardy species of Primrose, bearing upright stems of nodding lemon-yellow flowers in mid-spring. Flowers are very fragrant, making this an old favourite to gardeners that are familiar with it. Certainly an easy Primrose to please, happy in average to heavy soils and a partial shade exposure. This associates well with a wide range of spring flowering bulbs, as well as other rock garden species, especially blue Pulmonaria and Brunnera. Will tolerate full sun in cool summer regions.
