Plant Identification Help

Glen3Glen3 Posts: 2

Hi all,

I was hoping somebody could help me identify the following plant that has sprouted in my garden. 

I quite like it but would like to know what it is, so I can make the decision whether to deadhead it prior to seeding, if it'll start taking over.

The plant is almost 3ft in height with yellow flowers (see pictures):

    I'd guess Evening Primrose

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Evening primrose, oenothera biennis.

     It is biennial, the seedlings are a rosette the first year and flower and die the second year. They usually seed around copiously, but the seedlings are easy to pull out.

    Thanks guys.  Just googled it and looks like you're correct.
