Mexican Primrose - Oenothera berlandieri

Mexican Primrose

Description: Fragrant shell pink flowers on glistening petaled 1” to 2” flowers. The blossoms start out very pale then mature into their classic pink shading, with soft yellow throats.  Foliage is a soft green that gently sprawls.

Flowering Season: April through November

Comments: It blooms both day and night, but closes up to protect itself from the brightness of full sun. Spring blooming may last until the first frost in some regions. These flowers support pollinators, especially moths who visit these flowers at night. This makes a very dependable, low growing garden plant, but use care where planting, as it can become somewhat invasive through its runners and seed spread.


DISCLAIMER FOR USE: As in all agricultural plant products, responsibility for use remains in the hands of the consumer.
Please always plant conscientiously, and be aware of any species that might be considered invasive, in some areas.
