Wild Evening Primrose


In stock


(Oenothera biennis) A beautiful and useful native biennial, all parts of Evening Primrose are edible! The young leaves and shoots are especially good in salads, the first year roots can be eaten, and the seeds are especially nutritious (high in Omega-3 fatty acids) & can be eaten like flax seeds. In its second year, wild evening primrose produces a long-lasting spike of fragrant yellow flowers which hummingbirds enjoy, followed by a crop of seeds that are adored by birds, especially finches. Will readily self sow and naturalize.

Approx. 100 seeds per packet.
