Answer: The Evening Primrose is indeed great summer entertainment! I remember as a very small child visiting my aunt's in the summer and traipsing across the street every evening to watch the blooms appear. The 'Innocence' variety of Evening Primrose (Oenethera pallida) is available from Shepherd's Garden Seed. It isn't a yellow bloom, it is a delicate china white that turns pink as the flower matures. The scent is unbelievable, somewhere between lemon custard and honeysuckles. You can obtain seed for this plant by calling Shepherd's at (860) 482-3638 or, write them at Shepherd's Garden Seed, 30 Irene Street, Torrington, CT 06790-6658. Enjoy!
