Certainly an Evening-primrose

Certainly an Evening-primrose but I don't think it is O. biennis. The stigma length would suggest O. glazioviana, though that species would usually have some red coloration on the sepals,

Oenothera spp.

As Tiggrx says, certainly an Oenothera, but not I think O. biennis. Does heve the general look of O. glaziovana but the details are wrong. But, Oenothera are rather difficult in the flesh so to speak. Very tricky from a photograph. They have the most peculiar breeding system!

Oenothera sp

As above definitely Evening primrose but most likely O. glaziovana due to length of stigma in relation in relation to petals
