Item details

Evening primrose plants are great low-maintainence pollinator plants. This is a native plant to the American Midwest and is a shorter plant than common or tall evening primrose. It's xeric, or drought tolerant, and doesn't need to be watered heavily or often. It will also attract plenty of bees.

Be careful though that you keep it under control by either division or deadheading. Some folks call this plant aggressive, but it's easy to maintain. Getting it established can be the most difficult part. It really is a plant that can thrive in poor soil and in very sunny spots.

Germination instructions are included with your seeds. (about 40 seeds)

    Everything about the seeds and the seller were great. The only downside: customs fees.
