Oenothera ‘Crown of Gold’

A sport from Oenothera ‘Crown Imperial’, this cultivar was a lucky find.

Liss Forest Nursery was responsible for growing my Oenothera ‘Crown Imperial’

In a batch of several thousand plants Peter Catt found an eye-catching variegated shoot with a creamy margin.

Unfortunately Oenothera ‘Crown Imperial’ was not protected by PBR, if it had been I would have received a percentage of the royalty.


  • A hardy perennial
  • Eye-catching variegated mid-green foliage
  • The yellow edge of the leaf is very attractive in spring
