Good morning everyone and Happy Sunday!
Another beautiful day and a bright and beautiful flower to enjoy for today as well. This is one of our native wildflowers called “Common Evening Primrose”. They bloom on plants that are up to 6 feet tall, this one was about 4 feet tall (about 120cm), the flowers can be anywhere from 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5cm) across.
This one is not quite fully open and is just over 1 inch across. They are common along roads, railroads, edges of woods and streams. They can grow in very dry and poor soil, in sun or part shade. They bloom in our area from July to September. Have a great Sunday everyone and God bless!
