Petey will never be a learned fellow, but he’s a pretty nice fella.
Tufted evening primrose (Oenothera caespitosa) is beautiful wildflower of the uplands. And though seeing it on a summer hike sounds hot and grueling, it does bloom into the fall. If you want one for your own habitat, it is grown commercially, so look for it in a good little nursery. But I do hope you stumble upon it on an early morning hike in the hills.
