The primrose family comprises predominantly perennial herbaceous plants of diverse appearance. They crop up in early spring, sometimes even before the snow melts completely; in different climatic zones this period may extend for several months. A considerable share of the representatives of the family in Russia is available in mountainous and Arctic areas.
In Russia, there grow Julia primrose, cowslip paigle and fistulous primula, different kinds of rock jasmine, eyebright, golden loosestrife, Siberian Cortuza, and sea milkwort.
The postage stamps provide images of Julia primrose, golden loosestrife, eyebright, and Siberian Cortuza.
