I had no idea what this flower was when I took this picture. I was very disappointed when I identified as the evening primrose.
Of course I've heard about it but because of the name relationship I was expecting to see something as delicate as the spring primrose, the primula.
As its name says, evening primrose flowers should open in the evening but strangely, I took these photos in the middle of the day.
The flowers are very large with 5-6cm long petals. This species must be the Oenothera glazioviana, the large-flowered evening primrose on its common name.
