'African Sun' is a rather unusual evening primrose cultivar in that it actually flowers during the daytime.
Commonly known as evening primrose, this low, spreading perennial has narrow green linear leaves with red markings. Lightly scented, large bowl-shaped flowers appear pink/white all summer.
Individual flowers open a delicious tangerine orange before fading to red, creating a multi-tonal effect not unlike a sunset on each spike. Make sure you plant it with backlight for the full effect.
