Thanks for all the great info, katemisol. Nice to see you, cinderfire.
Love the color yellow, very cheery. Thx 4 this 1.
Hi wigma, themabes is correct, your plant is related to the common sundrop. The Latin name is Oenothera fruticosa and is from the Onagraceae family, and unlike some of the evening primroses, which belong to the same genus, these flowers remain open all day.I used to grow the evening primrose myself when I lived in the UK but I now live in southern Spain and the summers are unfortunately too hot and dry.
Thank you for stopping by themabes, anezka, and aggie.
I was looking for an explanation - Wikipedia mentions that evening primrose opens the evening or early morning. l am look at Your photo flower says it is also evening primrose. There are about 145 species of this plant. So you're lucky enough to bloom during the day.
They are related to the sundrop.
