Oenothera kunthiana ‘Glowing Magenta’


Sundrops

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.400.290


Sundrops are similar to Evening Primrose, but blossoms open in the morning rather than at night. This dwarf selection blooms all summer and into the autumn, producing satiny, rounded flowers in a deep magenta-pink shade. Plants form bushy mounds of glossy green leaves. Ideal for edging or in containers. Loves hot, dry sites. A short-lived perennial, but flowering profusely in the first season and even worth growing as an annual.
