Primrose is a popular native native wildflower, with pale yellow flowers.  It is low growing and is highly versatile; perfect in borders, wildlife woodland areas or naturalised into grass. Likewise it is lovely under deciduous trees where it will flower in early Spring from March to May before the leaf canopy creates shade. The flowers form super little clumps and look great to complement other Spring flowers, but equally striking when taking centre stage.
