Four o’ Clock (Mirabilis jalapa)
Four o’ Clock is a bushy, tender perennial that typically grows tall on erect, branching stems. The flowers are fragrant, funnel-shaped and tubular with five flaring petal-like lobes. Flowers bloom from early summer to autumn. The name is derived from the flowers opening in the late afternoon (around four o’ clock) and they stay open only until the following morning.
