Moisture retentive soil
Well drained soil
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.
