Cowslip is a beloved and popular wildflower that makes a beautiful addition to any wild garden or meadow-inspired backyard. Their clusters of yellow blooms are fragrant and vibrant. Another wonderful aspect of these lovely flowers is that they attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, and they are non-toxic to children and pets!
Cowslip, scientifically known as Primula veris, is found abundantly in the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as most of Europe. They’ve been grown in the US for hundreds of years as an addition to garden borders, pond landscapes, and wildflower gardens. Cowslips bloom in the spring, around April or May, with up to 20 individual flowers per stalk and multiple tall stalks reaching up to 8-10 inches (20-25 cm) tall.
