Hi , Bainne bo/ bleach[t] is a primrose , are they the same now? Bainne bó báinne is a cowslip, Bainne bó bleachtáin is a buttercup. Xty.

Sabhaircín is Primrose - I know this from experience as well as checking the dictionary.

Bainne bó bleacht(or bleachtáin) is what the dictionary gives for Cowslip.

Fearbán is Buttercup

'SeanMurphy1' - The National Botanic Gardens weblink is excellent,
would you by any chance have visited these gardens in Dublin?

One-fifth of native plants are now endangered by climate change,
this is serious as Ireland has a small number of native plants.
