This is the Pink Queen in an otherwise rather ordinary, yellow-flowered group--the evening primroses. The famous pastel pink Showy Evening Primrose is a star in the Texas wildflower group. Lady Bird Johnson, herself, calls it her favorite, and tells in her writings how she personally worked at gathering seed and learning its habits. When established, it forms great mats that bloom with a spectacular burst of shimmering color. Sold as a garden perennial.
