Primrose

A universal favourite. Scented pale yellow flowers with a deep yellow eye.  Looks excellent grown with purple and white violets. The common name is primrose, or occasionally common primrose or English primrose. In appropriate conditions, the wild primrose can cover the ground in open woods and shaded hedgerows. It is found mainly by streams, under bushes, in orchards and clear, moist deciduous forests. Occasionally it also appears in meadows. Both flowers and leaves are edible, the flavour ranging between mild lettuce and more bitter salad greens. The leaves can be cooked in soup but preferably with other plants because they are sometimes a little strong. The leaves can also be used for tea, and the young flowers can be made into primrose wine.

Devilsbit Scabious

The best butterfly plant. Round blue-purple flowers with purple anthers. Species of scabious were used to treat scabies, and other afflictions of the skin including sores caused by the Bubonic Plague. The word scabies comes from the Latin word for “scratch” (scabere). The short black root was in folk tales bitten off by the devil, angry at the plant’s ability to cure these ailments. Blue dye can be make out of the leaves and flowers.
