This common European native is most often found in large colonies, growing in fields and meadows. Many gardening books recommend this species as one of the most heat-tolerant of the primulas. The small green rosette is topped in late April - early May with 8" tall spikes ending in umbels of small yellow pendent flowers. I'd recommend planting several for best effect. Moist, rich, but well-drained neutral to alkaline soils are needed to make P. veris happy.
