More Information About Calylophus

Native to the Great Plains from southern Canada down to northern Mexico, the genus Calylophus contains just 6 species and is a relative of the "true primrose", Oenothera. Calylophus is an under-utilized, low-growing perennial that is covered with primrose-yellow flowers during the heat of summer. Calylophus is drought-tolerant and requires well-drained soil and full sun to thrive. This is one tough plant that tolerates hot, dry Texas summers with aplomb.

Calylophus is a low grower that spreads to up to 3' wide. This low, wide habit makes calylophus great for flowing over walls, baskets, or rock gardens. Try combining calylophus with other drought-tolerant, colorful plants such as lavender, agave, or verbena.
