Primula elatior is the true form of Oxlip. The most lovely highly scented, dark eyed, pale yellow flowers appear during the spring. Beneath the dainty blooms are oblong-shaped rough textured green leaves which form clumps of tidy rosettes.

Oxlip gives off a divine fragrance which makes it a wonderful choice for a sensory garden. This low maintenance perennial can also be used to encourage wildlife such as bees into your borders and beds. Providing the soil is reasonably good and the situation is sheltered but sunny, Primula elatior should flourish.
