Primrose tattoos

Primrose Flower Tattoos -  The common name is primrose, or occasionally common primrose or English primrose to distinguish it from other Primula species also called primroses.

It is a herbaceous perennial plant, low growing, to 10-30 cm tall, with a basal rosette of leaves. The leaves are 5-25 cm long and 2-6 cm broad with an irregularly crenate to dentate margin, and a usually short leaf stem. The flowers are 2-4 cm in diameter, borne singly on a slender stem, pale yellow, white, red, or purple, actinomorphic with a superior ovary which later forms a capsule which opens by valves to release the small black seeds.

The flowers are hermaphrodite but heterostylous; individual plants bear either pin flowers (with the capita of the style prominent) or thrum flowers (with the stamens prominent). Fertilisation can only take place between pin and thrum flowers. Pin-to-pin and thrum-to-thrum pollination is ineffective.
