Primula elatior

Primula elatior is rare in Britain, but common in Europe. The oxlip has upright stems with clusters of flowers, rather smaller than those of the primrose, and of a similar pale yellow. This is a strain derived from plants that we believe originated in France, and which we have grown for many years. Occasional seedlings that appear to be hybrids with Primula vulgaris are weeded out, but it is possible that they could occur again.

The oxlip; upright stems with clusters of pale yellow flowers.
