Welcome!

Can you share where the plants are located (where in the world plus wet spot, desert...)? Can you post a photo of the leaves and the rest of the plant? And a clear photo of a single flower?

Thanks for your quick response
Al-Baha city is located in Saudi Arabia (not a desert city) and it is a cold, rainy mountain city
There is a mountain range in southern Saudi Arabia.
Many plants can grow in southern cities.
(Almond, grape, barley, wheat, peach, pomegranate ... etc.)

This plant is strange and spread and I am curious to know it , thanks

Unfortunately you have given us nothing to go on. With clearer images, the collective minds of people frequenting this site would be more likely to be able to get you your answer. Several people working on your question could be more fruitful. As it stands now you are hoping that somebody somewhere might recognize it. It is like looking for a needle in a haystack but we have no idea where the haystack is.

We will have to put our collective minds together on this one. The added pictures are great, BTW.

Hi ookhalidoo, Welcome!

Those flowers also remind me of Appleblossom Grass (Oenothera lindheimeri), commonly called "Gaura", "Appleblossom Grass", "Wand Flower", etc.


edited to say: The scientific name is Oenothera lindheimeri

The plant in photo #3 looks like grass. Gaura has stems with leaves.

Good eye Daisy, without leaves, it's not Oenothera.
