Could anyone tell me if this plant is very tall  or is it as the lady at the store says - a trailing plant ?


No pic so difficult to say!

I have just checked my garden, bought this last year - found the label but no sign of plant! It was very pretty last year -gorgeous flowers, label says 100cm but it was no way that tall, only got to about 12-18 inches with a very lax sprawling habit. So not trailing but not upright either!

Woodgreen wonderboy

I have always thought of evening primroses as tall and upright... at least the varieties i have grown have been. A metre would be about right for the common variety.



Try this one if you want a trailer lucky. Oenothera macrocarpa. Used to be called O missouriensis and you might still find it called that. Easy from seed, Chiltern have it

Enormous flowers for the size of the plant, which is at ground level.

Thanks nutcutlet , I will give it a try , the plant I bought had only a name - no picture. but the leaves seam delicate and differant to evening primrose
