Primula veris is the cowslip, an old-time favourite, found decreasingly in meadows, in the shelter of hedges and at woodland edges, but increasingly on motorway embankments. The flowers, several to each stem, are smaller and richer yellow than those of the primrose, but backed by pale green calyces and stems, so the appearance from a distance is of a pale yellow.
