Native from Missouri and Kansas to Texas, O. macrocarpa was first recommended for American gardens in 1839 by Robert Buist in his book The American Flower Garden Directory; Buist included this species in a list of other Oenotheras that he called “all fine native herbaceous plants.” Oenotheras are commonly called either evening primroses or sundrops, depending on the time of day in which they bloom. The low-growing Missouri Evening Primrose will brighten up the edge of a flower border or rock garden, and will tolerate dry conditions once established. zone3,zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8,zone9
