Primula elatior

Primula elatior (NL: Slanke sleutelbloem / EN: Oxlip / DE: Hohe Schlüsselblume / FR: Primevère élevée) is a flowering plant in the genus Primula, found in nutrient- and calcium-rich damp woods and meadows throughout Europe. It is a low growing herbaceous perennial plant with a rosette of leaves 5–15 cm long and 2–6 cm broad. The light yellow flowers are produced in the spring between April and May; they are in clusters of 10-30 together on a single stem 10–30 cm tall, each flower 9–15 mm broad. It may be confused with the closely related Primula veris (gulden sleutelbloem / cowslip) which has a similar general appearance although P. veris has smaller, bellshaped, bright yellow flowers (and red dots inside the flower), and a corolla tube without folds. The leaves of P. veris are more spade-shaped than P.elatior.
