Oenothera missouriensis

Common Name: Ozark Sundrop

Canary yellow, mildly fragrant, 3" wide flowers are produced in great numbers over dark green, lanceolate leaves from early thru midsummer. Following the substantial blooms, 2-3" long, 4-winged seed pods are produced which are beautiful in dried floral arrangements. The trailing habit and drought tolerance of this perennial makes it ideal for softening the edges of pathways or planting in rock gardens.
