Easily grown in most parts of the world, Evening Primrose is a hardy plant that boasts study-based benefits along with some non-conclusive testimonial-based benefits. The oil, which is the medicinal part, is derived from the seeds and then used in medicine, soap, and cosmetics. Evening Primrose also contains essential fatty acids which are necessary to the human body for healthy body composition, mental and physical performance, and disease prevention.

- Breast pain management
- Nerve damage

Most effective growing in hardiness zones 3 to 9. Soil composition should be light and loamy or sandy soil with full sun exposure. Space seeds 8-12 inches apart as they can become invasive in growing over one another. Once flowered, pruning can be beneficial to encourage stronger blooms.
Water as needed.
