Shimmer Evening Primrose

Oenothera fremontii 'Shimmer' PP19,663

Shimmer evening primrose has cheerful, large lemon-yellow flowers that bloom profusely in late spring and rebloom in the summer and fall, scenting the evening air with fragrance. Shimmer is a great pollinator plant, attracting bees, sphinx moths and butterflies. It was selected by horticulturists Lauren Springer and Scott Ogden for its narrow, grassy, silver foliage which is even more delightful when dotted with the bright yellow flowers. Native to Kansas and Nebraska.
