  1. OENOTHERA 'APRICOT DELIGHT'

    Vast three inch fragrant lemon-yellow saucers slowly change colour through apricot to pink with age. This adorable back-of-the-border plant is unusual in that the flowers open during the day time when they can be best admired. Evening primrose oil, derived from the seeds, is a well-known source of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), said to be a good dietary supplement for women in particular. The small drop of this nutrient in every seed serves as a readily available energy boost for the plant, allowing it to germinate and grow faster than its competitors. ... Learn More

    Whilst being no relation to the true primrose, this is the original "Evening Primrose" beloved by gardeners and herbalists alike. Furthermore the epithet 'biennis' is not necessarily strictly true, this plant often behaves as a perennial, producing large, floppy, gently-perfumed, primrose yellow flowers on robust stems, until the late autumn. A final contrariness: the flowers actually do open during the day! ... Learn More

  11. OENOTHERA ODORATA

    Vast, three inch, fragrant lemon-yellow saucers open actually in the daytime on this adorable back-of-the-border plant, which is unusual in that the flowers open during the day time when they can be best admired. Evening primrose oil, derived from the seeds, is a well-known source of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), said to be a good dietary supplement for women in particular. The small drop of this nutrient in every seed serves as a readily available energy boost for the plant, allowing it to germinate and grow faster than its competitors. ... Learn More
