From a shortlist of 25 wild flowers, including honeysuckle, cowslip, poppy and foxglove, two spring woodland flowers have emerged as favourites in each of the UK countries.
Bluebell, known for carpeting spring woodlands in shimmering indigo, has come out on top in England and taken most votes overall in the poll.
In a surprise result, the humble primrose has clearly stolen the hearts of the Welsh, the Scottish and the Northern Irish.
Our favourite wild flowers
England: Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta)
Northern Ireland: Primrose (Primula vulgaris)
Scotland: Primrose (Primula vulgaris)
Wales: Primrose (Primula vulgaris)
The top 3
There were differences in opinion over which flowers should be placed in the top three for each country.
In England, primrose came a close second and poppy was third, perhaps spurred on by this year of remembrance
Wild daffodil – the well-known national emblem for Wales – didn’t even make it to the top three, with bluebell and wood anemone coming second and third behind primrose.
In Scotland, primrose was way ahead from the start, pushing ‘English bluebell’ into second place in a close tie with harebell – a beautiful wild flower often called ‘bluebell’ in Scotland.
In Northern Ireland, bluebell took second place behind primrose, with foxglove – which thrives on acid soil and is found in nearly every part of the country – coming third.
