Something Sunny

The gal at the farmers’ market called them “Sundrops”, but the name appears to be just the first clue. Sundrops are part of the Onagraceae family and the genus Oenothera. Another common name for them is “Evening Primrose”. However, with well more than 100 species about, I can’t tell you any more specifics. But I will pass on what the plant seller told me: “They’ll grow in almost every possible condition.” Sounded good to me and so far so good!

We used to grow pink and white ones, I'll have to dig out some seeds for the spring, such bright, happy little flowers.

Hi DMM -
Until I went Googling the other day, I hadn't realized they came in other colors.
They really are very simple and cheery!
