Oenothera Stricta 'Sulphurea' (Evening Primrose)

Oenothera Stricta 'Sulphurea' (Evening Primrose)

Large, very pale yellow flowers

Reliably flowering for many months, this showy evening primrose may be short-lived, but it usually self-seeds very freely. It produces large, pale yellow, almost cream flowers that will open in the evening and fill the air with their incredible, heady scent. It is very tolerant of poor soils and is generally very easy to grow.
