Oenothera macrocarpa fremontii ‘Lemon Silver’


Sundrops

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.400.250


This recent Canadian introduction should be added to the list of dependable, low-maintenance perennials that give colour all summer long. Plants form a low mat of silvery-blue leaves, bearing huge lemon-yellow crepe textured flowers that seem to float right on top. Sundrops prefer hot, dry sites and will tolerate poor soils so long as drainage is adequate. ‘Lemon Silver’ is excellent as an edging plant, in the rock garden, or even growing in containers. Remove faded flowers to encourage repeating. Registered with COPF: royalty required for propagation.
