This is the middle of the day an they are in full bloom. They open in the morning and close at dusk, even when put in a vase in the house.

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.
