(Oenothera biennis) A beautiful and useful native biennial, all parts of Evening Primrose are edible and the young leaves and shoots are especially good in salads. Produces a showy spike of fragrant yellow flowers in it’s second year that will last for most of the summer, followed by a crop of seeds in the fall adored by birds and humans alike. The tiny seeds contain high levels of essential fatty acids and can be eaten like flax seeds. Will self sow and naturalize.
