Tall Mix Four O’Clock


Tall Mix Four O’Clock

Mirabilis jalapa
Also known as Marvel of Peru. Breck’s in 1885 called it “a very desirable plant where there is plenty of room,” and suggests each specimen should stand singly 3' apart. The fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers, in bright shades of cerise, burgundy, pink, yellow and white, open in late afternoon, reaching peak glowing loveliness at dusk. The 2–3' plants make good background or annual hedge. Start indoors, transplant out when warm weather has settled in. Likes full sun. Will self-sow in warmer areas. Drought-tolerant. Annual. ~17 seeds/g.
