Oenothera pilosella

Common name: Prairie Sundrops

Native plant

Day flowering member of the evening primrose family.  Abundant large yellow flowers put on quite a showy display in late spring/early summer.  Plants tend to fade and look slightly less attractive during summer months.  Best used in beds where shrubs and larger perennials will fill out later in the season.
