Oenothera pallida fthills

The Pale Evening Primrose (Oenothera pallida) shown above is blooming in the Foothills in late May. Growing on a bone-dry hillside, it struggles against choking cheatgrass. Below, Pale Evening Primrose in the Garden, with some water, grows vigorously, blooms like crazy, and spreads by root!
