Cowslips (Primula veris)
Cowslips (Primula veris) are perennials with oblong leaves. In spring, they grow small, yellow flowers in clusters at the top of long stalks.
Our cowslips originate from Europe and Western Asia.
The flowers are handpicked in spring and used fresh, or dried, for use in infusions, ointments, and tinctures.
They can be eaten in salads, candies and used in beverages.
Medicinally, they are used internally for coughs, arthritis, insomnia and headaches.
