Evening Primrose Seeds

Oenothera biennis
Evening star, sundrop, weedy evening primrose, German rampion, hog weed, King's cure-all, fever-plant.

Large, light yellow bowl-shaped flowers, which open in the evening and attract night-flying pollinators such as moths. Evening primrose releases a pleasant evening fragrance, and is a good wildlife plant.

If growing in pots, make sure you plant the young plants out in their first year, as they are biennial (flower in the second year) and have a long taproot, which can be damaged when planting out in the second year.
