Evening Primroses are very showy flowers with unique blooming habits. While yellow is the most common variety, they also come in tones of pink and white. Also known as Oenothera Biennis, Fever type, or Suncups, this heat-loving plant is drought-resistant and low-maintenance.

Evening Primrose Reaches Over 2 Feet Tall

Reaching over two feet tall with a two-foot spread at maturity, this flower derives its name from its unusual blooming habits. This biennial opens its flowers around sunset and closes them around noon the next day. A member of the Onagraceae family, this plant's roots penetrate deep into the soil.

Evening Primrose Is Native To North America

Native to North America, it has a rosette leaf style at its base. Tall, hairy stems will shoot up and play host to lance-shaped leaves. These stalks will take on a purple hue as they grow. At the stem's apex, you'll find four-petaled cone-shaped flowers that love to bloom in clusters between May and September. Even better, they each emit a gentle, lemony aroma that is pleasant for any home gardener.

Evening Primrose Is A Fast Growing Herbaceous Perennial   

This fast-growing herbaceous type makes it the perfect addition to any open landscape area you want to fill. Its ability to grow in poor soils makes it ideal for hard-to-grow spots in any garden. This hardy type is self-seeding and isn't prone to severe diseases or pest infestations. It's deer-resistant and will attract bees, butterflies, and various birds.

Evening Primrose Produces Over 1000 Seeds Per Plant

This wildflower will transition from flowers to fruit pods in late July. These pods will be filled with close to 1,000 seeds that will be spread around via the wind to repropagate the Evening Primrose. They are typically about one and a quarter of an inch in size and appear much thicker at their base than at their tip.
