I want to plant Evening Primrose, but I see there are different varieties. Do they all have the same medicinal
properties, or is one variety better for woman's health?

Most herbalist speak of Oenothera biennis as the medicinal herb however Michael Moore (not of film fame) says "Only upright varieties are used" He says sow seeds at random in October in moist ground, then wait. Gloria
