Oenothera fruticosa

Oenothera fruticosa


Common name sundrops
Family onagraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-8)
Flowers yellow (June)
Size 18"
Light sun

Screaming yellow flowers on a robust-growing plant - we got one at the HPS/MAG spring sale last year, planted it and forgot about it, then wondered earlier this year what all those plants were. So we'll be on the watch for the wandering tendencies of evening primrose, but boy, those flowers are bright! A great surprise in mid-June.
This species is supposed to have red stems, which I haven't noticed on our plant.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
