Pale Evening Primrose
(Oenothera pallida)


Pale Evening Primrose






This species grows about a foot tall. Its flowers are about 2 inches across.

I have usually seen them growing in very sandy soil. Often many others will be blooming nearby at the same time, and the plants will seem to be covering the hillside.
