Oenothera biennis

Oenothera biennis

Common name common evening primrose
Family onagraceae
Life cycle biennial
Flowers yellow
Size 4'
Light sun-part shade

A weed that sporadically appears in our garden. It has a coarse basal rosette, from which a sturdy stalk rises in the summer of its second year. The stalk branches right at the top, to carry yellow flowers in summer. Not unattractive when in flower, but too unrefined and limited in its appeal to qualify as a garden plant.

This is a weed in our garden
