Propagation Protocol for Rock Evening Primrose, Oenothera caepitosa Nutt.

Luna, T. Native Plants Journal 8(1):40-41. 2007.

Rock evening primrose is readily grown from seeds. Mature capsules are collected between late summer and early fall. Seeds are removed from capsules by dring them for 4 wk in paper bags. Any capsules that have not yet opened on their own after drying can be opened manually. Seeds must be stratified for about 120 d to ensure germination. Seedlings can be grown to sufficient size in 1 y for outplanting using a standard medium and filter.
