From mid to late spring, scented, deep yellow flowers emerge from rosettes of mid-green leaves and hang in delicate clusters on erect With the reduction of old pastureland colonies of this lovely once-common native wildflower are decreasing. Cowslips are perfect for a wildflower garden on moist soil, so why not help to reverse this trend? Garden care: Generally, problem-free but do ensure that the ground remains moist, especially where the plant is growing in full sun.
