Oenothera fruticosa 'African Sun' is a rather unusual evening primrose cultivar in that it actually flowers during the daytime.  From late May into early autumn, this neat rounded plant is studded with lots of small vivid yellow flowers that really catch your eye and contrast well with the mid green foliage.

Reliable and hardy, 'African Sun' is easy to grow preferring a free draining soil and full sun, it even grows in stony soil.  A good choice for a gravel garden or rockery, it is also ideal for a raised planter or sunny container where it will raise a smile for most of the summer.  Pollinators love it too.
