My brilliant readers: what is this mystery plant?

I got an e-mail from D. M. asking for an ID on this plant that has slipped into her garden:

When I first saw it, I thought "hey, that looks like American nightshade..." then I saw the flowers. Then I wondered, is is a primrose?

Someone help this lady out!

In other news, I'll be at the Union Street Farmer's Market in Gainesville this evening, rare and wonderful edible plants in tow. We've got some cool new offerings now - I hope to see you there.

Its called a water primrose. Not sure if they have any practical uses.
