On the Sunny Side

I spotted these flowers while on a little walk yesterday.
My mother used to grow these in her garden.
She called them Mexican primroses (Oenothera speciosa); they're also known as evening primrose or pink primrose.
They'll grow in nearly any kind of soil, and are cold hardy in zones 5 through 9.  The only thing they're really fussy about is sun - they need at least 8 hours of full sun.

  1. Hello, the primroses are lovely. Beautiful images. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

  2. These are very enchanting. I occasionally see them here too. Make a lovely site. Hope you are having a delightful day.

  3. I love Evening Primrose. I used to have them in my old sunny garden.
    They have the faintest sweet scent.
    I'm convinced they are favoured by the fae folk :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
