The primrose must be one of the most emblematic and common flowers in northwest Spain in springtime. The first usually flower in mid-December, the climax comes in February and Match, and they finally disappear in late April and early May. During the summer months it is really quite difficult to tell where they have been - the leaves seem to change shape and texture, and the whole plant sinks back into the soil and is obscured by other vegetation.

In the garden (I adore primulas) I usually manage to keep some (both wild and cultivated) going, in flower, throughout the year, especially if the summer months tend to be overcast and humid.

Address: Buriñes valley.
Directions: And everywhere at low altitudes in northwest Spain.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
