Pink Evening Primrose
My favorite sun worshipper is popping up all over* the Circle Garden. If only the rest of my perennials were this low maintenance...
She prefers unimproved soils, blooms throughout the summer months without water or fertilizer.
* Don't let these pretty pink blossoms fool you. She's well-behaved in the torture chamber next to the road in front of my house. In a well-maintained garden she'll become downright invasive.
Oenothera speciosus 'Rosea' ~ USDA zones 5-9
