We are very excited about this native perennial that just screams out as you walk by. This clumping oenothera (unlike its misbehavin' cousins) makes a loose 1' wide rosette of brilliant silver foliage. About the only things this easy perennial requires are a hot baking spot and well drained soil. From June through October, the plants are constantly topped with 2" bright lemon yellow flowers.
