Oenothera biennis, also known as Evening Star, Sundrop, German rampion, Hog Weed, and Evening Primrose is a member of the Oenotheraceae family native to North America. This herb gets its name from its flowers that remain half open until late afternoon when they fully open to reveal beautiful yellow flowers. The stems and leaves of this plant are edible and can be sauteed with vegetables or added to salads for a peppery kick and roots can be boiled and prepared similarly to parsnips or potatoes. Many Indigenous groups use Evening Primrose in their spiritual practices, as medicine, and as food.

Humans are not the only ones who benefit from Evening Primrose; a variety of birds, small mammals, and even deer enjoy eating the seeds from this plant.
