Missouri Primrose

Missouri Primrose  (Oenothera missouriensis or Oenothera macrocarpa)

I photographed these flowers this morning after the school bus picked up my son Jeffrey. They are starting to bloom on the rocky areas along our driveway.    I planted seed several years ago and more bloom each year.    Missouri primrose blooms at night and are  pollinated by moths.    The blooms start to wither by the end of the day, but they are impressive while they last.
