Foliage Type: Lanceolate-shaped blades, 2-4" long

Planting Requirements: Incorporation of organic matter and Advanced Formula Plant Food will enhance establishment and blooming. Full sun site will give best results.

Unique Characteristics: This old-fashioned favorite has been overlooked since the proliferation of new and supposed improved varieties. The trailing habit of this species makes it a natural for raised beds and planters. Can also be a cascading rock garden plant that will extend the blooming of most spring flowering alpines, or soften the edge lines of a walkway. The bright yellow blossoms glisten in the sun and cover the entire plant, which can be in stark contrast to blue-flowering Scabiosas and Salvias. Extremely tough plant that thrives in poor soils and drought conditions.
Additional Information: Plants appear late in the spring

Garden Novice Review by Jen - Bolingbrook, IL

Ordered two of these in the fall of 2011. They bloomed that first summer and have thrived despite drought conditions, a little neglect on my part and the occasional trampling of a toddler. I'm ordering more!

I bought the plant three years ago and they continuously bloom every year without major care. The flowers keep blooming over and over especially in the summertime.

This little bush is entertaining! The flowers bloom each night at sunset. Each flower opens over about 2 minutes. It is covered in blooms by dark. The flowers wilt by morning. The show starts each night from June till September. Grows FAST!

Colorful, bright, playful perennials, the Missouri Evening Primrose makes a delightful addition to any garden. The vivid canar- yellow evening primrose will add a splash of sunny color and a sweet scent to any area of your garden, as these low maintenance beauties require very little. They look great as border plants, work well in rock gardens, and are one of the few flowering plants that tolerate shade. The Missouri Evening Primrose is a great plant for those who are just starting their gardening journey because it happily tolerates poor soil, low light and neglect. The Missouri evening primrose has large, fragrant blooms up to 4 inches wide. Their ground-hugging rosettes of green foliage are lovely throughout the year, remaining evergreen in most climates. One of the first perennials to bloom, their cheerful, lemony color will liven up the landscape in early spring and continue to provide beautiful, bountiful blossoms on into fall.

These rugged plants don't require any special planting instructions. This primrose reaches 9 – 12 inches tall and 12 – 18 inches wide with a sprawling or trailing growth habit. Hardy in zones 4 – 8, it is a good idea to protect them with light winter mulch in colder climates. Equally suitable for formal borders and naturalized plantings, their trailing habit also makes them ideal for raised borders and containers. The evening primrose plant pairs well with ferns, hostas, Japanese iris, forget-me-nots and pulmonarias, among others. Long-lived perennials, Missouri Evening primroses will continue to provide a lively burst of color in your garden for years to come.
