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 it’s dry and lean.
Oenothera fruticosa ‘Fyrverkeri (Fireworks)’ (P-1707)
PREORDER FOR SUMMER 2023
Ornamental orange-red buds, an over-the-top floral display and outstanding cold hardiness earned ‘Fireworks’ a 5-star rating at the Chicago Botanical Garden’s recent Oenothera trail. Single, canary-yellow bowl-shaped blooms appear in scores, embellishing a prismatic foil of bronzy-green lance-like leaves with maroon overtones and compact red-hued stems. Admirable in the cottage garden or tucked among rocks, this highly treasured native Sundrop offers additional enticements when distinctive seed pods appear and burgundy-imbued leaf rosettes warm the winter landscape.
Size: 15" – 18" high x 12" – 15" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
