    My grandmother always referred to those as primrose here in AL. I can't say that's exactly what they are but she was my resident plant expert growing up. :D 

    Beautiful. I love the last shot!!
     
  3. Bubba, thanks. You're right. It's called as Evening Primrose.

    We used to call them wild roses, but primrose sounds correct.

    Thanks Brandon!!

  6. The primrose grows wild and is really difficult to get rid of if they get started in your shrubs and lawn.

    we used to have them in areas of our yard. Fortunately, the were around natural rock outcrops so they were pretty and not a problem. I've never actually tried getting rid of them but, like all native species, I can imagine them to be difficult.
     
  8. Very nice looking wildflower!! :D  :D  :D
