Oenothera speciosa ‘Rosea’ grows best in the garden. Prepare a wide hole and thoroughly loosen the soil with a fork. Heavy soil can be improved with a mix of sharp sand. Plant your pink evening primrose at the right depth - the top of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the planting hole with soil, press firmly in and water immediately after planting. Oenothera speciosa ‘Rosea’ will thrive in a sunny, warm spot in well-drained soil.
Pink evening primrose is an easy and very abundantly flowering perennial. Needs watering regularly so that the soil around the roots does not dry out. However, soil that is too wet is not tolerated (especially in the winter). During the flowering period add a regular mix of plant food in the watering can. Completely cut away dead flower stems to encourage and extend the flowering period. Flowering will continue throughout the summer. In winter the plants die back, so cover the plants with a layer of leaf litter for protection. In the spring cut back all withered foliage and soon new shoots will appear.
