We love these Evening Primroses. They are established as a roadside weed and I collected some seed some years back. They grew well, as a biennial and once the first flowers appeared, they have propagated themselves and we have several flowering plants each year. They have a very long flowering season, producing flowers every evening for about three months, right through the summer. The individual flowers, open just before dark, bloom through the night and fade and die during the following morning, but there always plenty more waiting to take over the following night.
We have a new summer pastime. On a warm summer evening, we sit on the patio and watch the flowers open. An individual flower opens over a period of about 5 minutes and it is a delight to see the whole process, which takes so long in other species. We compete, trying to pick which flower will be the first to open!
