150 KISS OF SUMMER - EVENING PRIMROSE
Morrill County, Nebraska Panhandle A cluster of Evening Primrose overlooks the Oregon Trail from Courthouse and Jail Rocks in the Nebraska Panhandle. One of the most beautiful wildflowers on the prairie, Evening Primrose can be found growing in full sun in dry open soils, rocky hillsides, meadows and old fields. This hardy plant grows in a sprawling manner and produces vivid blooms measuring over five inches across. The flowers open in the evening and close during the day and their strong scent attracts pollinating moths. A staple food for many Native American tribes, the entire plant, including roots, leaves, blooms, and seed pods, is edible and is often used for medicinal purposes.
