Four o’clocks, also known as Marvel of Peru and botanically named Mirabilis jalapa, are a foolproof addition to any garden. These plants offer a stunning array of colors and stripes on their flowers, making them a visual delight. Though often treated as annuals, they develop fleshy tubers and can return year after year.

Growing to a manageable height of 2 to 3 feet, four o’clocks boast flowers in a fascinating variety of colors, including marbled bi-colors. Their name comes from their habit of opening in the late afternoon and staying open into the night. Sweetly scented, they attract honey eaters, butterflies, and even hummingbirds. Remarkably, the same plant can produce flowers in several different shades.

 

MIXED SEEDS ARE LARGE, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.
