at Digging Dog

Sundrops

Oenothera fruticosa Fyrverkeri (Fireworks)

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.

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.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
