Primula veris


Primula veris is a variable evergreen or semi-evergreen perennial plant growing to 25 cm (10 in) tall and broad, with a rosette of leaves 5–15 cm long and 2–6 cm broad. The deep yellow flowers are produced in spring, in clusters of 10-30 blooms together on a single stem. Each flower is 9–15 mm broad.


The cowslip is frequently found on more open ground than the primrose, including open fields, meadows, coastal dunes and clifftops. Spotted in an open meadow at mount Chortiatis (Thessaloniki, Greece).


Greek names: Πρίμουλα η εαρινή, Ηρανθές το εύοσμον. Greek common names: Δακράκι, Παναγίτσα, Πασχαλούδα.
