Native to Missouri, this easy-to-grow, drought tolerant variety grows to be only 6-12” tall. Large, cheerful yellow blooms can reach 5” across and are slightly fragrant, blooming in the late spring to summer. This showy variety is perfect for almost any garden or meadow and even tolerates light shade. Missouri Primrose also self-seeds, coming back year after year.

Plant Information

The evening primroses are a group of yellow-flowered plants that range from short “sundrops” to the tall ones like this species. Unlike the roadside weed, Oenothera biennis, O. lamarckiana makes a good meadow plant. Flowers open in the afternoon and are closed by morning. See related species—the ground-hugging, very large-flowered Missouri Primrose, O. missouriensis and the famous pink-flowered Showy Evening Primrose, O. speciosa.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
