Primrose, from the Latin "prima rosa", meaning first rose or flower, is a favourite for its early Spring blossoms and has come to symbolise first love. The five petals of the flower represent birth, initiation, consummation, repose and death, whilst a rare primrose with 6 petals is said to bring luck in love and marriage. The sacred flower of the Norse goddess of love, Freya, Primroses also have a long association with fairies and folklore. Posies left or growing next to a doorstep encourage fairies to bless the house and it is said that if you touch a fairy rock with the right number of primroses in a posy you will be shown the way to fairyland.
