Oenothera deltoides

Desert Primrose and Birdcage Plant.

We currently do not grow this plant.

A beautiful annual or short lived perennial(like every perennial in the trade) of the much of the desert areas of Southern California. This picture was taken around Ridgecrest, but I have seen it at the I-5 interchange at Kettleman City, and South of Shandon also. Fragrant and produces masses of flowers. This plant disappears after flowering, nothing there. I doubt you will every see it in commercial seed packs, it would be nice if a seed grower dealt with it. We grow it off and on, the plants are usually big for the pots and flowers appear all summer long.

Oenothera deltoides tolerates sand.

Oenothera deltoides's foliage type is stressdeciduous.
Oenothera deltoides's flower color is white.
