Oenothera cespitosa - One of my favorite flowers
Desert evening-primrose, butte primrose, rock-rose, in the evening-primrose family. These bloom at sunset, stay open only one night, and shrivel to the pink remains you see below the white one here. Karl tells us they turn pink after pollination, "blushing after sex."
