A fast-growing perennial the Showy Primrose produces probably the best flowers of all Evening Primroses. The large fragrant pink crepe-textured flowers with centres that open on summer evenings, fading the next day to soft pink.
This rhizomatous spreader can form large patches but can be excellent for roadside beautification or meadows when planted on masse.
A good choice for the rock garden or as border edging containers and pots.
Especially suited to hot, dry sites with well-drained soil. A hardy plant will self-sow readily.

Originates from North America.

Prefers well-drained soil in an open sunny position, drought tolerant once established. 

Adaptable to most soils and conditions providing it is in a sunny position.

Tropical: Autumn.
Sub-tropical: Spring & Summer
Temperate: Spring & Summer.
Cold: Mid-spring to Mid-summer.

Sow: on the surface and cover very lightly. Requires light to germinate.
For best results sow directly into the soil where they are to grow. If growing in trays transplant when large enough to handle to avoid excessive root disturbance.

Flowering: 16 weeks

Feed with a soluble fertiliser every two weeks for more vigorous plants.
