From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Primula vulgaris is a species of Primula native to western and southern Europe, including the British Isles. The common name is Primrose, Common Primrose or English Primrose. It is one of the earliest spring flowers, and in appropriate conditions, it can cover the ground in open woods. In more populated areas it has suffered from over-collection and theft so that few natural displays of primroses in abundance can be found. Picking of primroses or the removal of primrose plants from the wild without the permission of the owner of the land on which they are growing is now illegal in the UK.
Primroses are perennial, low growing herbs with actinomorphic flowers and a superior ovary which later forms a capsule which opens by valves to release the small black seeds. The plants are monoecious but heterostylous - plants are either pin (with the capita of the style prominent) or thrum (with the stamens prominent). Fertilisation can only take place between pin and thrum plants. Pin to pin and thrum to thrum pollination is ineffective.

Primula vulgaris is generally distinguished from other UK native primulas by its yellow flowers produced singly on long flower stalks which are covered in rather shaggy hairs.

Hello Cezar, the greatest photographer of Romainan flora.
I have captured a few days ago very similar one. It was into my deleted images and it has white petals too. But I didn't decide to definition that is an albino type of Primula vulgaris or not. Can you give some info about yours primula's habitat? How a place that you have taken it? Acualis means there is moist, watery soils, where P. aculais live. Greetings

waww..superbe flori..
Imi place cum se vad..

Hi Cezar.
Beautifulness of your picture is simply great. Tiny flowers are reproduced perfectly. Amazing delicate colours and lighting. excellent details of the petals and grass. Cropping and composition of the shot are wonderful too. As I know your lens is not perfect. However you make wonders. My compliments and best wishes.

Foarte faina poza.
Imi place foarte mult combinatia de culori si claritatea fotografiei.
Numai bine,
