Primrose

It was believed that a flower blooming in winter or a single flower brought into the house signalled death. If you had less than 13 in the first spring posy the hens on your land would only have as many chickens as primroses in the posy. The Welsh traditionally believed that it is bad luck for a primrose to flower before June. Evil spirits are deterred from hanging around a house if primroses are planted in the garden, and at one time were used as a cure for insomnia.
