Its trailing growth makes it ideal to grow as a ground-cover at the front of a border, trailing beneath taller plants and tumbling over walls, walkways and containers.

Nearly indestructable Review by Tammy - Porterville, CA
Posted on 2013-03-31 22:30:12

Don't know if this counts or not but I did not order this plant from Michigan bulb I had taken it from a friends garden as a small little plant . I took it home and then forgot that it was still in my car when I finally remembered 4 days had passed and I thought it was dead so I tossed it in a spot where I had intended to make a flower garden . I watered the area so the soil would be easier to turn when the time came and to my surprise the little plant I thought I had killed was green and had a flower on it already .That was 2 years ago and now this beautiful little plant with it's lovely pink flowers has completely taken over the flower bed and the walk way and under the porch stairs and anywhere else it decides to grow . I recommend this plant to anyone who has an empty garden spot and don't have a lot of time for watering or tending to a flower bed . I at times have not been able to water as I am disabled and bedridden quite a bit and this plant has not been affected one bit .

Showy Primrose Sundrops Review by Anita Cunningham - Snellville, GA

A back-road favorite in GA. They are wonderfully dependable and beautiful when grown between shrubs or other plants that are awaiting bloom time. Transplant very easily...

You'll be delighted with the dazzling carpet of brilliant pink flowers created by Pink Sundrops. Also known as Pink Ladies, pink evening primroses or, simply, sundrops, they are very durable and lend themselves magnificently to hillsides or other dry areas where little else will grow.

Pink Sundrops are virtually maintenance free. Because this perennial flower plant is drought resistant and thrives in poor soil, it's not uncommon to see them flourishing along roadsides or in sidewalk medians as you're passing by. Sundrop Plants drape themselves in rosy 2 to 3 inch flowers beginning each late spring season. They are wonderfully fragrant and will coalesce beautifully with the other plants in your flower bed, without choking them out.

These perennial flower plants are most commonly used for summer borders and wildflower gardens.Their dazzling yellow sundrops will glow in your summer garden and warm it's border as it nourishes the butterflies and bees.While the delicate blossoms of this showy evening primrose may belie its vigorous nature, no one can deny the beauty of a blanket of its pale pink flowers.

The Pink Sundrop is a marvelous plant with lovely flowers, that will help turn your garden into a charming and cheerful place to be. Whether you're with friends or relaxing alone with a good book during those easy days of spring and summer.
