Onagraceae Family

Oenothera Genus
Physical Description
The leaves form a basal rosette at ground level and spiral up to the flowering stems; the leaves are dentate or deeply lobed (pinnatifid). The flowers open in the evening, hence the name "evening primrose", and are yellow in most species but white, purple, pink or red in a few. Most native California species are white. The fragrant evening primrose Oenothera caespitosa, a California species, first blooms white but turns pink or light magenta, stigma with four branches, forming an X shape, basal green leaves, upright habit

Late Fall Perennial Plant Photo

If you're wondering what those attractive stems and pods are in your garden in fall, or if you should pull this plant out as a weed or not, these photos of some key garden perennials in late fall may help. May also have basal growth by then, as you'd see in spring, which may help identify them too.
