Yellow in the flower bed

A primrose bud

I found the first pale yellow primrose buds under the big oak by the house today.

They’re not the only yellow, though. There have been golden yellow crocuses for some time.

But the flowerbed is dotted all over with yet another yellow: berries which have fallen from the yellow mistletoe growing in great clumps on the branches of the oak.

        Couldn’t tell you, I’m afraid, but bear in mind that wild primroses and what I call primulas (more than one flower on a stalk and different colours) can behave differently. What would you want to grow?
