Evening primrose (Oenothera biennis (Common Evening Primrose))

This is a very pale yellow. I love seeing these pop open in the evening.

It is certainly lovely and such a nice colour. Is it a tall one or one of the shorter variaties?

Oh Toto, if the tortoises walk through the flowerbed its a shorter one but if they leave it alone it grows quite tall! About the same as the bright yellow one really but not as vigorous at seeding itself unfortunately :)

All of mine, bright yellow and these pale ones, have been flowering for a week or two now. Don't know if they are doing it at the right time or not :)
