Œnothera Speciosa - Hardy Perennial

OEnothera Speciosa - Hardy Perennials and Old Fashioned Flowers

OEnothera Speciosa Described.

OEnothera Speciosa - Œnothera Speciosa - Showy Evening Primrose; Nat. Ord. Onagraceæ.

A hardy and beautiful perennial species from North America; it is aptly named, as the flowers are not only large but numerous. The plant has a gay appearance for many weeks. As a garden flower, it is one of those happy subjects which may be allowed to grow in any odd corner, no matter what quality the soil may be, and full exposure or a little shade is equally suitable. No matter where it grows in the garden, it is a showy and pleasing flower, which, if plucked, is found to have the delicate smell of the sweet pea. It grows 18in. high, is herb-like in the foliage, and very distinct from other species, more especially as regards its slender stems and somewhat large and irregular foliage.

The flowers are a satiny white, delicately nerved, and nearly 3in. across; the four petals are a pleasing yellowish-green at the bases; when fully expanded they form a cross, being clear of each other; they become tinted with rose when they begin to fade. The leaves are of various sizes, sometimes spotted, lance-shaped, toothed, and attenuated at the base. The general habit of the plant is erect, but it is often procumbent; it has, from its slender stems, a light appearance, and for one evening's use the sprays are very useful in a cut state.
