•American grown seeds
•US Native Wildflower
•USDA Zones: 5-11
Pink evening primrose is Oenothera speciosa, and is also sometimes called Pink Ladies or showy evening primrose and pink ladies. It is native to the southeastern U.S., reaches 18" tall and is considered an attractive wildflower in many locations. Pink evening primrose plants grow low to the ground and spread in an informal and loose way making it a beautiful groundcover. Due to how easily it spreads, we recommend growing it as a container plant where it is exceptional and to add showy color to your garden beginning in late spring through most of the summer. This native wildflower is easy to grow and doesn't require any stratification.
Direct sow in early spring, pressing lightly into the surface of the soil since this seed needs light to germinate. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which should occur within 10-30 days. When the seedlings can safely be handled, thin or transplant for wider spacing. For an early start, start the seed indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost and transplant outdoors. Water the seedlings until they become established. Mature plants can tolerate almost any type of soil, though they tend to wilt in extremely dry soil. This plant needs little care and grows easily.
