The Evening Sun Evening Primrose is a darling perennial that has a petite form but makes a significant visual impact. The botanical name is Oenothera missouriensis, and the low-lying plant blooms from spring through summer. The sunny yellow flowers have a delicate appearance and stand out against the thin, silvery-green foliage. The plant is named because the flowers open in the afternoon or evening and remain open overnight to support butterflies and moths. The flowers fade in the morning only to be replaced by new blooms the following evening. 

Feature evening primrose near the front of a bed so the dainty flowers are visible. Butterflies enjoy the fragrant flowers, but deer and rabbits usually leave the plant alone. The Evening Sun Evening Primrose is low maintenance and grows in zones 5 through 9.

Evening Sun Evening Primrose Care

Evening Sun Evening Primrose can happily live in any type of soil, but it prefers a moist, well-drained site. Plant this cultivar in full sun. This plant has low water needs and is drought tolerant at maturity, but water it during a dry spell for best performance. Fertilize monthly during the growing season.

This plant quickly spreads to fill empty spaces, but feel free to pull any wayward plants or thin the growth if it becomes too dense.

Evening Sun Evening Primrose Spacing

Evening Sun Evening Primrose has a diminutive form and only reaches 3 to 6 inches tall but spreads 15 to 18 inches wide. Space this vigorous grower 17 to 19 inches apart and allow new growth to fill in the gaps.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
