- Prim Rose
- Primula vulgaris
This wild flower is a spring-time favourite. Two distinct types of flowers grow on different plants, with the male or female parts visible respectively (the "other" partner, i.e. stigma or anthers, is hidden deep in the tube of the flower). This wild flower specimen has the "pin" of the female stigma clearly visible; in "thrum-eyed" individuals the male anthers are visible in the centre of the flower instead. Primroses are still common on sunny banks, hedges and in old woodlands.
