Oenothera lamarckiana 'Evening Primrose' - 150x Seeds 

Evening primrose (Oenothera lamarckiana) is a common edible wildflower that’s popular with foragers, since it’s edible tip to root.  The roots and leaves are available in early spring, the edible flowers bloom all summer long, and the seeds can be harvested in autumn and winter.

The plants are biennials, and they grow into a low basal rosette in their first year, stocking away energy into a thick tap root.  In the second year, they use all those stored calories to send up a tall flower stalk.

Evening Primrose is edible and is also used medicinally, both internally and externally. You can eat the leaves, stalk, flowers, seeds, and taproot of the plant, but because Evening Primrose is a biennial, different parts of the plant are tastier in different years of the plant’s life.
