More Information About Oenothera

Oenothera is a large group of American native perennial wildflowers (including North Carolina) that include many wonderful garden specimens as well as a few bad weeds, all recognizable by their butterfly-attracting yellow flowers and 4-way branched stigma. We selected a small number of Oenothera species as excellent garden performers.

Most plants in the genus Oenothera are well adapted to dry sites, so gardeners should create well-drained beds to ensure success. Oenothera looks great in a rock garden, as a mass planting in a perennial border, or combined with blue or purple flowered plants such as iris, buddleia, or campanula.
