Canary yellow, mildly fragrant, 3 inch wide flowers are produced in great numbers over dark green leaves from early through midsummer. Following the substantial blooms, 2 to 3 inch long, 4-winged seed pods are produced which are beautiful in dried floral arrangements. The trailing habit and drought tolerance of this perennial makes it ideal for softening the edges of pathways or planting in rock gardens.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Oenothera will maintain a healthy compact form in poor, well-drained soil and full sun. In more fertile soils, it tends to spread rampantly. Evening Primrose is perfect for covering gravelly banks and other areas where the soil quality is poor. Hot, dry conditions are no problem for this plant.
