Oenothera missouriensis

A serviceable ground cover rather than accent plant in the garden. Also known as Missouri Evening Primrose. Produces very showy, 7.5cm (3") wide, poppy-like, bright lemon yellow flowers on compact plants. Plants are quite showy once established and will thrive in sunny hot areas with soil that is less than ideal. Establishment and persistence is enhanced in dry, well drained soils. One of my favorite perennial plants! Hardy to Zone 4.

How to Grow

Sow indoors in a soil-less mix in January through February, germinate at 20C (70F) for 14-21 days. Seeds germinate better when given a cold treatment prior to sowing. Grow on at the same temperature then transplant to the garden 30cm (12") apart when the danger of frost has passed. Direct seeding can also be attempted in May and again in August for flowering in the following year.


Approx. 60 seeds/pkt.
