Oenothera macrocarpa, also known as the Evening Primrose, is a popular and highly fragrant summer perennial plant that produces beautiful saucer-shaped golden-yellow flowers. Impossible to ignore when they flower from June through to September, they will add elegance and charm to the summer border or patio containers for gardeners with smaller space. These cheerful flowers also make excellent cut-flower displays where the vibrant colour and sweet fragrance can be enjoyed within the home. Reaching a height of 15cm with a spreading habit of 40-50cm, we recommend planting in sunny areas with well-drained loam or sandy soil where they will thrive. UK-grown 5cm module plants supplied.
