Oxalis obtusa

RHS Wisley have a good collection of different colour forms of Oxalis obtusa.

Primula Iris Mainwaring

Wandering down into the rock garden, there are some spectacular displays of primulas, dotted with Narcissus cyclamineus.

Epimedium x versicolor Sulphureum

At the top of the rock garden there is a large patch of this epimedium, adding a welcome primrose yellow in spring.

Narcissus bulbocodium

At this time of the year, the meadow beside the rock garden is full of daffodils.  It is known for the N. bulbocodium naturalised there, but higher up the slope there is also a large patch of what looks like N. pseudonarcissus, and there are a surprising number of Erythronium dens-canis in amongst the yellow.
