Fragrant, tiny, nodding trumpet-shaped, bright yellow flowers bloom in early spring. A much loved English wildflower, which was once gathered by the armful to make wine. The flowers and the wrinkled oval leaves were eaten in salads, and cowslip petals in sugar was recommended as an excellent and refreshing salad. It thrives in sunny locations with rich humus earth, as well as in shade, and spreads to form large cheerful looking clumps. Nice in combination with jacob's ladder, or perennial forget-me-not. Listed in an 1827 seed catalog. 7" tall. Zones 4-8.
