Macro Monday and Mellow Yellow Monday April 30 2012

I have forgotten the name of this flower.

It grows to about knee-high or more, and the blooms form at the leaf joints.

Can someone help me identify it?

Happy Monday!

    Wishing you a good day.

  2. What pretty captures. I do not know the names of hardly any of the flowers people post and to think I was married to a Landscape Architect for 18 years. I cannot even identify trees. I am very limited in this area. I do know they are both beautiful macro shots and the leaves are just as pretty. genie

  3. I love the tiny shadows in the last image...just beautiful!

  4. Wonderful details and color!

    Happy MM

  5. Very pretty. I'm guessing Sundrops, either Oenothera fruticosa or a related species. I have Oenothera fruticosa which is a perennial about that height and is one of my favorites. I spotted the first bloom on mine yesterday. I also have the biennial Oenothera biennis, Evening Primrose, whose blooms are just as pretty, but the plant is weedier, biennial, blooms in the summer, and the blooms don't open until evening. I think there are several other species with very similar blooms that are also called either sundrops or evening primrose.

  6. Hello Sharon,
    I think you are correct! I looked at some photos and descriptions of Evening Primrose on the Internet. Then I went outside tonight with a flashlight to look at my plants. Very much alike. And I think the blooms open today have faded, and new blooms are freshly open!
    Thank you for your help!

  7. Lovely, almost luminous lemon yellow flower! Delightful!

  8. Very beautiful green flower. I also agree with sharon, it is some oenothera, primrose.


I enjoy your comments!
