Primula elatior (L.) Hill subsp. elatior
Common names: Oxlip [En], Primevère élevée, Primevère des bois [Fr], Slanke sleutelbloem [Nl], Hohe Schlüsselblume [De], Primula maggiore [It], Çuha çiçeği [Tu]

Meise, BRABANT ● Belgium

Description: 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 (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.
