WANTED: Have- evening primrose plants

If you have never seen these bloom, it's really something. The adults I had last year resulted in tons of seedlings that will bloom next summer. They need decent soil and near full sun, but they will put on quite a show every evening when all the flowers open within 20 minutes, each flower opening in 5-10 seconds. Every time I show someone they are amazed.

Will trade for nearly any low maintenance flower.

It's awesome to see. My neighbors will sometimes come over in the evening for what our kids refer to as "showtime!" Most nights we'd have 20-30 blossoms pop on each of our two plants. I probably have 30 plants to swap.

They are self-sowing, but easy to get rid of if need be.

Very neat video! I really liked the immediate presence of the butterfly (or was it a moth?).

I would be interested in a couple of these, but I don't have much up right now. Check out my list and let me know. I think I have a bit of hens and chicks, yarrow, and my shasta daisy-Becky that are still above ground right now. Not sure what else off the top of my head. I will have more later in Spring.

Let me know.
