Oenothera missouriensis
“Ozark Sundrop”

Such stunning blooms combined with HEAT and DROUGHT tolerance make this showy and highly reliable perennial a great asset in both well-drained rock or cottage gardens. Reaching to 10” tall and 1-2.5’ across with attractive and substantial slender leaves, “Ozark Sundrop” blooms exuberantly Spring thru Fall, bearing countless large and luminous, lightly scented, 3-4”, silky bright lemon-yellow “saucers” loved by hummingbirds and hawkmoths. A TOUGH and EASY Midwestern native, it tolerates poor and limey soil, though some fertility and deadheading will produce the most and longest bloom. NOT INVASIVE. Cut back to 1-2” in Fall. Deer resistant.
