Evening Primrose Seeds History

(Oenothera biennis) Great for eczema, dermatitis and skin allergies. It can also reduce inflammations, ease bloating of menstrual discomfort, and strengthens liver functions. One of the most interesting uses of evening primrose is to help alleviate symptoms of multiple sclerosis and other nerve disorders. It is one of the few herbs that can help with nerve problems.

How To Grow Evening Primrose From Seed

Plant evening primrose either in autumn or in early spring. Sow the seed on top of the ground. The four-petaled blooms that begin coming out at the start of summer are about one inch wide. 

In the first year, evening primrose will not flower but will produce a leafy rosette at ground level. A white vein runs along the middle of each leaf. In the second year, the purple flower stem shoots up about midway up the flower stem. The leaves become progressively smaller the farther you go up the flower stem.

Herb Uses

The entire plant is edible. The early leaves are cooked and eaten as greens, and the roots are said to be sweet, peppery, and delicious when boiled like potatoes.

Evening Primrose flowers are a sweet addition to salads or as a garnish. The entire Evening primrose plant was a staple food for many Native American tribes.

Primrose Nutrition

  • bruises
  • hemorrhoids
