-*Evening Primrose: PERENNIAL that is SAFE to feed REGULARLY as part of a varied diet. Blooms are often yellow, but there are some pink varieties available. Tortoises are said to love these flowers that bloom for a short time in June/July. Full sun.
I got our evening primrose last spring when it was probably no taller than two inches. It's native here and grew like a beast -- it gave me no trouble at all! It took off like a rocket and is around 5 feet tall now. Steve loves the leaves and flowers, and it's plenty tall enough to provide some shade for him. :) Here's a photo of the blooms:
