Evening Primrose ~ Oenothera villosa

Yesterday there was no sign of these at all, but at sunrise this morning they were shining like bright yellow beacons.

  4. I guess I’ve only recognized them when they have the lavender flowers. Maybe I’ve seen them in yellow and didn’t know what they are but I do see the lavender ones now and then.

    • They really have a vibrant color, and of course, these were brand new blossoms too. I suppose they will be gone tonight.

    • Yes Lores, this species is a native. I see them in many locations, but not in great numbers. They fascinate me because they are night bloomers and the blooms last only one day. I’ve very pleased that you like seeing my photos of the outdoors! Wildflowers are a special passion!
