Earlier this week I noticed an unknown yellow flower growing in a spot we don't often mow. I've no idea what this is.

YUP, evening primrose.  Smells really nice, long taproot, probably drough resistant as it grows all over my driveway w/no additional water from me. If you run over it or break it it keeps on growing only shorter!  Bees like it in the early am, don't see tons but steady. Has lots of pollen.  I'm moving it to the outer parts of the property.  Next year gonna see what happens if I prune it all the time, will it make a bush??  Jody

Absolutely Evening Primrose, an invasive species of plant for sure and drought resistant.  Jody, I think you could make what they call a standard of it.  Many plants can be pruned to make a bush, you just have to keep pinching out any new growth, like early in the season.  Everywhere you pinch the new growth that will divide to make two more stems with leaves coming, and you keep pinching out all new growth and you have a lovely bush.  Have a most wonderful and awesome day, love life.

Ours has a long, long blooming time.  They started last month & will keep on till it freezes hard.  Gonna move em along the back of the house & garage where nothing else will grow!  They are easier to transplant before they get the taproot going!   Jody
