The true Oxlip is not to be confused with the false cowslip (Primula × polyantha) or cowslip (Primula veris) which look similar but are more common. This beautiful selection bears upright stems with clusters of nodding, soft-yellow trumpet, fragrant flowers, that nod to one side, in mid-spring held above a rosette of bright green leaves. A favourite to gardeners who are familiar with it. Certainly an easy Primrose to please, happy in average to heavy soils and a partial shade exposure. Excellent in containers and window boxes. 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. Easily divided in early fall.
