Evening Primrose (Oenothera mix) 40 seeds (#1333)

Mildly fragrant, 6-8 cm wide flowers are produced in great numbers over dark green, lanceolate leaves from early thru midsummer. Following the substantial blooms, 5-8 cm long, 4-winged seed pods are produced which are beautiful in dried floral arrangements.
The trailing habit and drought tolerance of this perennial makes it ideal for softening the edges of pathways or planting in rock gardens.
Prefers a dryish well-drained sandy loam and a warm sunny position, though it is tolerant of most soils. Heavy clay soils may induce winter rots. Grows well on very poor soils. Established plants are drought resistant. Formerly cultivated for its edible roots, the evening primrose is being increasingly cultivated for the oil contained in its seed which contains certain essential fatty acids and is a very valuable addition to the diet.
The flowers open in the evening and are strongly scented with a delicious sweet perfume, attracting pollinating moths. The seeds are a good food source for birds. Plants usually self-sow freely if they are growing in a suitable position, they can naturalize in the wild garden. (info source: pfaf.org)
