The primrose family contains some familiar species that one would expect but there are some surprises too! Generally five-petalled flowers and quite small plants. Primroses are quite likely to hybridise with other members of the family and the garden primula is beginning to have a detrimental effect on wild populations so beware 'freaks'. (Note: Purple Loosestrife is actually a member of the Lythraceae family).
