Oenothera

Evening Primrose

A lover of sunny sites, this large genus produces cup shaped, papery, long blooming flowers. Most Oenotheras are indigenous to North America, and are easily grown in well drained soil, even if itís dry and lean.

Oenothera fruticosa ‘Fyrverkeri (Fireworks)’  full sun
Sundrops
Oenothera fruticosa Fyrverkeri (Fireworks)

Ornamental orange-red buds, an over-the-top floral display and excellent cold hardiness earned ‘Fireworks’ a five-star rating in the Chicago Botanical Garden’s recent Oenothera trail. Single canary yellow bowl-shaped blooms appear in droves, embellishing a prismatic foil of bronzy green lancelike leaves with maroon overtones and compact red-hued stems.

Admirable in the cottage garden or tucked among rocks, this highly treasured native Sundrop offers added enticements when distinctive seedpods appear and burgundy imbued leaf rosettes warm the winter landscape.

Blooms June – August.

Size: 15"–18" high x 12"–15" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Oenothera stricta  full sun
Oenothera stricta

In 1790, this notorious beauty made its way from Patagonia to England in the pockets of a ship’s surgeon. With flowers that are known for opening in perceptible movements at dusk, the Evening Primrose is a temptress that draws gardeners to her side as the sun goes down. The fragrant flowers, which begin as yellow, turn peach, and then shimmery coral-red, and the narrow, linear leaves, all crinkled and wavy-edged, make this plant a spectacular specimen in the rockery or in a more informal native setting.

Blooms May – August.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered a few things and had a pleasant experience. Email communication was prompt. The plants themselves arrived swiftly, were very well packed and were very large and had impressively healthy root systems. I would definitely order from them again.”
