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.
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.
Oenothera stricta (P-0108)
