Four O'Clocks Seeds

 Mirabilis jalapa

  

Hummingbirds particularly love Four o’ Clocks, as do bees and butterflies. Gardeners grow them for their amazingly aromatic presence, their ability to grow in just about any soil under any conditions and the ease with which you can control their reseeding habit. The single seed appears as each flower falls, looking like a black peppercorn. Four O'Clocks acquired their name as it opens in mid-afternoon. It remains open overnight, and closes in early morning. They will also remain open on cloudy days. They are noted for their strong, pleasant fragrance.Bushy, erect 2 foot plants produce very fragrant 2 inch trumpet shaped blooms in a wide range of attractive colors.Will Bloom from midsummer until frost with the flowers opening in mid-afternoon. Winter hardy to zone 8, but blooms the first season and is grown as annual in colder zones.

Native to tropical areas of North and South America. They are also called "Marvel of Peru". Four O'Clocks are actually perennials that are grown as annuals in the U.S.

The bushy plants make attractive hedge or border. Flower colors include white, red, pink, yellow, and some two-toned blooms.
