Oenothera pallida - Pale Evening Primrose

This is a listing for a pack of 100 seeds.

Oenothera pallida is a species of evening primrose native to the drier areas of Western North America (although absent from California). The specific name means "pale".

The pink primrose has stems that grow to 50 cm in height. The leaves are alternate reaching 10 cm long to 4 cm broad. It produces single, four-petaled, cup-shaped flowers on the upper leaf axils. These fragrant pale flowers bloom throughout the summer into early autumn. The 1.5–2 in (3.8–5.1 cm) flowers start out white and change to a blush colour as they age.  It blooms both day and night, but typically in the pre-dawn hours, closing when the full sun hits them. They bloom from April to August, and occasionally into the autumn. The flowers are frequented by several species of insect, but moths are the most common as the flowers are mostly open at night.

The plant's wild habitat includes rocky prairies, open woodlands, slopes, roadsides, meadows and disturbed areas. This drought-resistant plant prefers loose, fast-draining soil and full sun and is suitable for Zones 3 - 9.    This self-seeding nature will allow it to establish in cottage gardens and similar, where it will attract wildlife.
