Primula elatior

Common name oxlip
Family primulaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers yellow (spring)
Size 10-12"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes prefers humus-rich soil, good drainage

Fragrant soft yellow flowers held above a rosette of mid-green leaves. More heat- and drought-tolerant than most primulas, but probably best suited to part shade in our climate.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
