Growing & Maintenance Tips for Oenothera missouriensis

Oenothera will maintain a healthy compact form in poor, well-drained soil and full sun. In more fertile soils, it tends to spread rampantly. Evening Primrose is perfect for covering gravelly banks and other areas where the soil quality is poor. Hot, dry conditions are no problem for this plant.
