I submitted this to the database as Mexican Evening Primrose, but now am wondering if that is correct. I no longer have it and this is the only picture I have of it that I am aware of. It usually got about 18-24 inches tall and spread like wildfire. If I can't get positive ID, maybe I should just have it removed from the database.



Thanks.
Vickie

I agree. The color is deeper than the ones growing on my farm, but I think variable color is typical of evening primrose.

where did it go?
It is such a great photo I wanted to at least give it thumb!
don't remove it!
Without a positive ID of a specific cultivar it can still be submitted under Oenothera speciosa--just not 'Rosea' or 'Skiskiyou'
and it does have variable color from white to pink to deeper pink Smiling

Vickie, I agree ... that is a beautiful photo and you should upload it to the general entry for: Oenotheras (Oenothera)

This might be a good time to try out Dave's new photo finder tool, if I can figure out how to use it.
Edited to add: I did not see it (I meant the photo) not the tool.

The tool is cool! I just tried it --looked through new images in the Oenotheras Database (none) and all the images submitted today
but I can't find this photo

The photo is probably going through a vetting process before it appears on the plant page.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

anyway to associate this thread with the photo now so that we all get contest points? Hilarious!
just kidding--probably not the most useful conversation to preserve in the database

dirt, sorry for so much confusion over this plant. I wasn't sure where the picture was either after submitting it. The original submission was rejected, so I had to submit again. I didn't even know there was a contest going on. Babysitting grandkids will do that!
