Can anyone tell me what these yellow flowers are?




Hard to tell from that distance, but they do have the appearance of Evening primroses, Oenothera.

I was going to say that too but not sure which species.

Thankyou for your help, my husband thought that too but I thought Evening Primrose were on a bush like the one top left of the photo. These flowers aren’t on bushes?

the taller varieties are loose flowers on a tall stem 3 ft ish. Not aware of any shrub varieties though.

There are about 145 species of Oenothera ranging in size from ground huggers to tall ones. Without seeing the leaves and a closer view of the flowers it is not easy to say which one this is.

Are you sure that the bush in the top left corner isn't a Hypericum? (Bit hard to see on your photo) Oenothera are herbaceous plants, not shrubs, though its easy to see why you might confuse the actual flowers.

It looks like what I know as Oenothera missouriensis. I think that they have changed the name since I first met, though.

Tug I meant the little bit of shrub just showing in the top left corner

Oops! Sorry, Steragram! I thought that they were talking about the herbaceous plant in the center of the picture.
