You'll delight in the regular opening and closing of this little perennial's flowers. Creeping sundrops is a member of the evening primrose family and prepares for nightfall by closing its cheery lemon-yellow flowers, only to unfurl them again the following morning. Perfect for low-water areas, grow creeping sundrops near the front of beds and borders, or use it as a low-water groundcover. It grows best in very well-drained soil that is on the moist side of dry.
Note: This perennial is native to areas of central North America and is also an excellent rock garden plant. Be sure it doesn't stay too wet in winter, otherwise it may rot.
