Description

The golden flowers of Evening Primrose are eye-catching and long-lasting. Oenothera is a reliable, tough, hardy perennial which will grow almost anywhere, even thriving on neglect.

Oenothera 'African Sun' is a special plant, with a rounded, compact habit. These mounded plants are excellent in borders, summer patio containers or bedding schemes. The golden blooms are also open all through the day, unlike other Evening Primrose strains. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Evening Primrose plants dislike wet soils in winter. Plant them in a well drained site, on free draining or even poor stony soil, in full sun.
More Info
Feed and water plants regularly until they are fully established. Once established, they will only require watering in the hottest of summers. Cut back faded flower stems and apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown of each plant in spring.
