Primula elatior - Oxlip, is a small but vigorous wild primrose with more open flowers than the cowslip and a softer, butter-yellow color.

Flowers: April - May

A short hairy perennial, closely related to the more well known Primrose from which it differs by leaves, which become suddenly broader above the middle, as well as having deeper yellow flowers, which are arranged on an umbel (all the flower-stalks originate from the same point), as opposed to the Primrose where each flower has its own long stalk.

Oxlip is a plant of moist habitats, such as woods, coppices, ditches, moist grassy meadows and stream-sides on heavy soils.

It is remarkable how great a number of hybrids the Primrose family has produced. The many coloured Polyanthus, which is now often sold as a cheerful bedding plant for the spring in many garden centres and supermarkets is extremely closely related to the Oxlip and Cowslip (P.veris).

Very good picture. I like sharp, colorful flower on BG with strange but beautiful... well what is it exactly? Dew reflections in lenses?

Very good photo, great light.
Very sharp
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice Astrid.
Nice colours, composition and good light and details.
Very good work.

Postcard material ! Good subject, nice blur of background !

I will agree with you about the ease of hybridisation of the whole family you often see pink or magnta coloured flowers in the midddle of a group of wild ones which means the bees who cannt tell the differnce have been busy, and in the process ruined a wild colony.
this here is good shotof the flowers in soft light.
