Common in OK and TX, this obligate outcrosser is closely related to O. laciniata and O. humifusa, which are functionally asexual
The functionally asexual Common Evening Primrose plays host to over 150 arthropod species. Genetic variation in plant traits of O. biennis are among the most important ecological factors influencing the abundance and distribution of insects on this plant.
