Four O'Clock, Marbles Mix

Short Description

Rare, striped, trumpet-shaped flowers with a sweet, orange-blossom scent.

Full Description

This collection produces a sweep of 1 1/2" flowers in white marbled pink, rose, red and yellow, and 4 o'clock is about the time the striped, trumpet-shaped flowers open, suffusing the air with a sweet, orange-blossom scent. Plants attract hummingbirds by day and moths by night. Great for border or container. Plant in average, well-drained soil after last frost, and this annual will reward you with a summer full of colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh Mine didn't bloom, but grew about 4 inches high. I will save the tubers over the winter. Maybe they will bloom next year. The germination rate was excellent. Maybe I planted them in a sub optimal part of my garden. Not sure. I will try to keep one inside as a house plant. I would be neat if it grew enough to blossom, and if it really did smell like vanilla. But so far, I don't know.
