Easy to grow, tall plant that opens its beautiful yellow phosphorescent flowers in the evening which also gives
rise to such names as ‘Evening star’ or ‘Moths Moonflower’. Another common name is ‘Kings cure all’ as this
plant has so many medicinal properties. The Oijbwe tribe in America were perhaps the first to realise the medicinal potential, using it as a poultice to heal bruising and skin problems but also to help asthma. All parts of Evening primrose can be eaten, the roots apparently taste like parsnip!
