[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Family name:Onagraceae
This is a perrennial herb from a tap root.The flower has four white petals, four sepals, eight stamen. It has a fragant flower too.
I took this photo in Arches National Park and so its' habitat is desert shrub, but it grows in grassland, and pinon-juniper communities as well.
The genus name "Oenothera" means "wine scented" and refers to using the roots in winemaking. The species name "Caespitosa" means low growing.

Hello Karen,
A nicely composed shot of this pretty desert plant. What seems interesting is that the full open flowers are white, yet the wilted flowers have a pinkish red color.
Nice clear detail and beautiful natural coloration.
