Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews

Well branched plants, red stemmed with rich green, lanceolate foliage. The striking flowers are in whorls, vivid orange/red when fully open and when over, turn to red. Like many Oenotheras, the combination of open and spent bloom together, is stunning. This very choice plant makes a wonderful addition to the perennial border and because it flowers in its first year from sowing, it also makes an attractive annual.


Culinary note: Add petals to any salad to add a splash of colour with a lettuce-like flavour. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing Months Flowering Months

Cut down to ground level in late autumn.

Sow from late winter to mid spring on the surface of a good seed compost just covering the seed with a thin layer of compost or vermiculite. Germination takes 14- 21 days at 10-15C (50-60F). Don't exclude light, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful.

When large enough to handle, transplant the seedlings to boxes or 7.5cm (3in) pots, and grow on in cooler conditions. When well grown gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out in late spring after all risk of frost has passed, 30cm (12in) apart in full sun and ordinary well drained soil.

Pretty and quite different 2012-07-31

i was not sure what to expect.Most of the evening primroses I have are very tall and sometimes overpowering. These were a pleasant surprise growing to about 24" some a little taller but the flowers are really quite delicate and not a brash orange, more pale orange bordering a peach with the the reddish stems and the bluish green leaves it is a welcome addition to the border. I would highly recommend this plant
