Pink Butterflies in a Groundcover
Evening Primrose 'Siskiyou', Oenothera berlandieri 'Siskiyou', displays pale pink cup-shaped flowers up to 3 inches in diameter and smothers this improved selection all summer!
'Siskiyou' is a compact, floriferous, tidy groundcover. It has a spreading habit and mature height of 8-12 inches; spreads from underground runners. Each translucent petal has pronounced veining that resembles the intricate wing of a butterfly; glows when backlit by the sun.
'Siskiyou' is a hardy plant which once established requires little care; drought tolerant. It is excellent for softening the edges of pathways or planting in rock gardens, edgings, and borders; fills in even in poor or dry soils.
Divide this Evening Primrose in spring. It is best to avoid overly rich or poorly drained soils. ‘Siskiyou’ has an extremely long flowering time, June to September.
Oenothera requires full sun and needs a good drainage site. Use in borders, rock gardens, or containers. A wonderful sun plant, Siskiyou’ is a delightfully scented perennial and a must have in any sunny garden!
