Oenothera speciosa - Pink Evening Primrose

Oenothera speciosa - Pink Evening Primrose

According to the WFC’s NPIN, this flower tends to open in the morning in the southern parts of its range, which stretches throughout the central plains of the US.  So we must officially be in the southern part of the range, here in central Texas. A spreading perennial that tolerates partial shade and drought, it’s another possibility for adding to my wildscape this year.
