The evening primrose is a very unique flowering plant producing a tight rosette of flowers the first year, but the flowers are located spirally on a stem the second year. It produces flowers from late spring to late summer. The flowers are hermaphrodite, meaning that they open visibly fast in the evening and only last until noon the following day. The flower has a bright nectar guide pattern visible to the pollinators like moths, butterflies and bees but we have to use ultraviolet light to see the guide. The seed capsule bursts into four sections at maturity, providing food for the birds and seeds for the next generation of evening primroses. What delightfully interesting features!!
Perhaps the Lord really enjoyed designing that one.
There’s joy on the sunny side.
