Western natives related to and much resembling evening primrose (Oenothera), with bright yellow, four-petaled flowers over a long summer bloom period. Plants are 1–2 ft. tall. In Zone 13, flowering declines in summer heat, and plants flower in spring and from late summer to fall. Plants spread by rhizomes and are useful for summer color in difficult climates. Shear just before spring growth begins. Plant in well-drained soil. They tolerate regular water if drainage is superb.Calylophus drummondianus
