Oenothera Versicolor Sundrops Sunset Boulevard Evening Primrose Flower Rare 10 Seeds

10 SEEDS OF OENOTHERA VERSICOLOR An absolute smasher is this splendid plant bearing lovely flowers that open orange and then gradually change to red, giving a striking display in your border. 2ft (60cm) Oenothera can be annuals, biennials or perennials, upright or spreading in habit, with simple or lobed leaves and bowl-shaped, white, yellow or pink flowers over a long period in summer 'Sunset Boulevard' is a bushy perennial with narrow, mid-green leaves with some bronzing in spring and autumn. The cup-shaped flowers, produced from early summer to early autumn, open in the daytime, starting yellow, turning orange, then fading to red. Grow in poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Sundrops are similar to Evening Primrose, but blossoms open in the morning rather than at night. This outstanding selection features flowers that open in shades of orange and lemon yellow, deepening to orange-red through the day. Plants form a bushy, upright clump of olive green leaves. An excellent choice for containers, even worth growing as an annual in colder climates. Also grows well in the garden, particularly in hot, dry sites. Removing faded flowers will encourage plants to bloom for longer. A wildflower native to California.
