Evening Primrose (Oenothera)

This plant originates from South and North America. Oenothera means "Donkey Catcher" because it was once thought that animals could be caught with the poisonous components of the plant. 
The flowering months are from July to August.
A precious oil is pressed from the seeds of the plant, which are rich in unsaturated fatty acids for cardiovascular diseases or epilepsy.
