Fireworks Evening Primrose

Oenothera fruiticosa 'Fireworks' is a wonderful selection. It has a short stature compared with the species and fabulous fall color. The deep bronze foliage and red stems and buds opening to canary yellow blooms in late Spring and early Summer. Striking! Deep red foliage in fall and winter. 

An excellent choice for a border or sunny slope.
