Cowslip - Primula Veris
Early spring flowers for traditional meadows and hedgerows. With their nodding yellow heads, Cowslips are a favourite spring flower for many. They were common in traditional meadows, but sadly the beautiful swaths of yellow have become a rarer slighting. Cowlips are hugely beneficial to wildlife as an early source of nectar for bees, beetles and butterflies. Generally they flower from April, but can be earlier with a mild winter.
