9. Common Evening Primrose

One of the most pleasant things about Oenothera biennis is it's light, lemon-y scent--I want a perfume that smells that good! The plant can grow to five feet tall (this one was pushing three feet), and has alternate, slightly toothed, lance-shaped leaves. The leaves on this one had recently been nibbled on by the Japanese beetle I had to flick off before taking the photo.
