From the foothills of the Chilean and Argentinian Andes comes this showy, night-flowering plant with large, perfumed, luminous yellow flowers on extremely long-tubed seed pods. With constantly dividing stems clad in unusual silvery-haired leaves, it soon grows into a quite compact dome, an unusual habit for an oenothera.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
