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 mass.
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. 
Adaptable to most soils and conditions providing it is in a sunny position, drought tolerant once established. 

Oenothera speciosa was originally native to the United States of America in the grasslands of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, northeastern New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
