Common Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) are known for their lemon-scented, large yellow flowers and vibrant leaves. It is an easy to grow drought tolerant native, that will do well in a range of soils. The flowers bloom continuously from early summer to fall, opening in the evening until late morning and are pollinated by night-flying moths and bees in the early morning. Seeds are also an important food source for birds.

Growing Instructions
