General Information

Primulaceae
Evening-Primrose, Suncups, and Sundrops.

The whole plant was used to prepare an infusion with astringent and sedative properties. It was considered to be effective in healing asthmatic coughs, gastro-intestinal disorders, whooping cough and as a sedative pain-killer.

Young roots can be eaten like a vegetable (with a peppery flavor), or the shoots can be eaten as a salad.


The flowers open in the evening, they are yellow but turn orange or magenta by late afternoon.

In the wild, evening-primrose acts as a primary colonizer, quickly appearing wherever a patch of bare, undisturbed ground may be found. This means that it tends to be found in poorer environments such as dunes, roadsides, railway embankments and wasteland. It often occurs as a casual, eventually being out-competed by other species.
