White Evening Primrose

This perennial occurs across the western United States, from 4500 to 7500 feet. From spring through late summer it produces masses of huge white flowers that open in the late afternoon and fade to pink by morning. The fragrant flowers are at least 4 inches in diameter, and stand out against the large dark green leaves. Plant in full sun and well-drained soils.
