•US Native Wildflower
•USDA Zones: 2-12
Grow an Evening Primrose garden out of freshly harvested Oenothera biennis seed. Evening Primrose is native to almost every state in America. As they mature, the plants measure 36 to 72 inches tall and are covered with bright yellow flowers. Four primary petals make up the blooms, which measure 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. Adding these flowers to your garden will not only attract beneficial insects, but will also make your garden smell lovely. Among these insects are butterflies, ladybugs, bumblebees, hummingbirds & honeybees as well. Evening primrose has also been used to treat asthma, eczema, attention deficit- hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), hepatitis B, high cholesterol, liver cancer, breast pain, obesity, menopausal hot flashes and night sweats, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and skin or joint symptoms of psoriasis.
Direct sow in early spring, pressing lightly into the surface of the soil since this seed needs light to germinate. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which should occur within 10-30 days. When the seedlings can safely be handled, thin or transplant for wider spacing. For an early start, start the seed indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost and transplant outdoors. Water the seedlings until they become established. Mature plants can tolerate almost any type of soil, though they tend to wilt in extremely dry soil.
