The Primrose is a native plant of Britain seen during Spring in woodland, under hedges and in grasslands.

It is identified by its pale yellow flowers supported on stalks of up to 15cm. It is currently under threat in East Anglia due to loss of habitat and climate change...the flower does not survive well during hot dry summers.

April 19th is 'Primrose day'. This date is the anniversary of the death of the former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli as the primrose was his favourite flower. Queen Victoria is said to have sent him bunches regularly and to this day primroses are laid at his statue by Westminster Abbey on this date every year.
