The primrose overwhelmingly took out the title for favourite flower not only in one region of Britain but in three.  Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales all agreed that the humble primrose deserved the top spot; these results come after nearly three months of voting.

England diverged from the pack and voted for bluebell to slide into first, but primrose lovers should not be disheartened by this information as the primrose managed to secure a reasonable position in second place.

The question of favourite flower was put to the public as part of Plantlife’s 25th Anniversary celebrations.  We at Primrose are particularly ecstatic about these results and cannot wait to see what happens at the next vote. Can this beautiful wildflower win England over and reign supreme? We have our fingers crossed.
