Evening Primrose is a 3' to 6' tall native biennial with a terminal spike producing 1" wide four-petaled yellow flowers. The flowers open a few at a time and only at night, reflecting the common name. It is usually found growing in dry open fields, roadsides, and waste places or disturbed areas. Evening Primrose prefers dry to medium soils and full sun or part shade. Evening Primrose has a native distribution over all of the lower 48 states except for a few southwestern states. This plant is important to a number of birds and animals as a food source, especially to some nocturnal moths. Native Americans used the plant for a large number of medicinal purposes, and modern testing has confirmed the effectiveness of some of these herbal remedies.
