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.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
