Showy Evening Primrose

Showy Evening Primroses

Also known as pinkladies, pink evening primrose and Mexican evening primrose, this wonderfully beautiful native to the Central United States and Northeastern Mexico is spreading across all of the lower half of the continental United States from coast to coast, mostly due to its use in gardens and hardy nature. These were photographed just a few feet from the beach in North Florida’s St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge on the Gulf of Mexico.
