Common Evening Primrose, Oenothera biennis

This plant has a group of bright yellow flowers at the top of one stem. It’s very erect and blooms early summer through fall.

It’s called ‘evening,’ but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it open all hours of the day. To see a honey bee with it, visit this webpage.
