Primula by SeriantSlyjarr Primula by SeriantSlyjarr
Primula vulgaris

Primula vulgaris (syn. P. acaulis (L.) Hill) is a species of Primula native to western and southern Europe (from the Faroe Islands and Norway south to Portugal, and east to Germany, Ukraine, the Crimea, and the Balkans), northwest Africa (Algeria), and southwest Asia (Turkey east to Iran). 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 (see further below), 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 (longuistylous flower: with the capita of the style prominent) or thrum flowers (brevistylous flower: with the stamens prominent). Fertilisation can only take place between pin and thrum flowers. Pin-to-pin and thrum-to-thrum pollination is ineffective.

Szártalan kankalin

A szártalan kankalin vagy guggonülő kankalin (Primula vulgaris) egy Magyarországon is őshonos, a Primula nemzetségbe tartozó növényfaj. Észak-Afrikában, a Kaukázusban, Nyugat-Ázsiában, Európában, Magyarországon a Dunántúlon nem ritka. Magyarországon védett növény, de kertekben is telepítik, és termeszthető is. Régebben kulcsvirágnak is hívták, mert a középkori hiedelem szerint minden zárat kinyit. 2,5–3 cm átmérőjű, kénsárga, csopros virágok magányosan állnak a tőkocsányok végén. A csészecimpák hegyesek, a sziromleveleken öt-öt narancssárga folt van. A párta csöve hengeres, hosszabb, mint a karimája. A virágokban sok a nektár, ezért előszeretettel gyűlnek rájuk a méhek és a korai citromlepkék.A kertészeti változatok virágai szinte bármilyen színűek lehetnek.
