  • I'm not 100 percent but looks like the leaves of evening primrose

    Not 100% certain , but looks like the biennial Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) .

    Yep, Evening Primrose. Though ours seem to behave like perennials???

    I never quite understand this ; an elderly lady (94) has the same huge clump of Hollyhocks growing every year ; had them for so long she can't remember . No Hollyhock Rust either !
    Now if I attempt Hollyhocks , they're strictly biennial for me :/

    Maybe she's got a new cultivar! Money to be made :)
