From mid to late spring, scented, deep yellow flowers emerge from rosettes of mid-green leaves and hang in delicate clusters on erect stems. This much-loved cowslip is undemanding and will naturalise easily, forming wonderful colonies on moist soil. It is perfect for a wildflower garden or meadow.
- Garden care: Generally, problem-free but do ensure that the ground remains moist, especially where the plant is growing in full sun.
