Regional natives of particular interest: Oenothera elata

An upright evening primrose.  Tolerates a range of watering / moisture situations, but normally is found where watering or moistness is frequent throughout the year, like many other garden plants.  Occasionally plants will be found growing wild in urban areas near asphalt or concrete where no irrigation occurs, doing pretty well and blooming most of the time.  With adequate water the plants grow to around 5 to 6 feet and spread, or in less favorable conditions, they may only get a couple feet or so.  This patch is growing along the side of an onramp in Carmel Valley.  The green ground cover mass of plants behind it is a spreading form of Baccharis pilularis.
