Description

Easy to grow, it reseeds freely and flourishes in drought!

Dwarf 6- to 12-inch plants!

You may ask yourself why this is called an Evening Primrose, since it neither blooms in evening nor has primrose-colored flowers! Nonetheless, this unusual and exquisitely lovely variety is a native U.S. plant, hardy in most parts of the country and simply awash in soft pink blooms all summer long. A real joy for the garden, it flourishes in poor, dry soils receiving hot sun, and thrives despite drought!

Eager to reseed, it quickly establishes handsome, mounded colonies just 6 to 12 inches tall that return for years of beauty! The cup-shaped blooms are blush-pink at the petal tips, shading to pure white toward the tiny yellow center. 2 inches across, they jostle one another for position atop the low-growing plant, almost hiding the foliage. And the bloom is successive waves from earliest summer till the onset of cooler fall temperatures. A fine choice for the front of the border or naturalized in an open meadowland setting. And if you like this pink species, try mixing it with gleaming white Innocence! Direct-sow this seed in late summer, autumn, or spring, or begin indoors in earliest spring to transplant as soon as the weather warms up. Space the plants about 6 to 8 inches apart for a dense carpet of color. Enjoy! Zones 5-8. Pkt is 50 seeds.
