Vigorous and easy to please, this Evening Primrose makes dense, weed-smothering mats. The dark-veined, rose-pink flowers shade to white in the center and feature a greenish yellow throat. They are showiest in late spring and summer, but plants will re-bloom if cut back as the flowers fade. Discovered at Oregon’s legendary Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery.
