Tall Four O’Clock Mix (Mirabilis jalapa) A delightful heirloom originating from the Peruvian landscape and brought to North America in the mid 1800’s. Named for its ability to exude a most wonderful fragrance in the late afternoon (usually around 4-6pm EST) from a mix of white, crimson pink, violet, and yellow flowers. Plants can grow up to 3 feet in diameter and height, so space is required to enjoy the full effect of these beautifully fragrant and trumpet-shaped flowers. Start indoors, transplant out in a sunny location around the same time tomato plants are set out. Seeds are black and do resemble small barrels or black grenades! This is a drought-tolerant, showy annual worthy of reserving a spot in any flower garden! Your local pollinators will love this one, including hummingbirds!

15 seeds per packet $4.45

Planting Instructions: Direct sow in garden at 1/4" depth after the soil has thoroughly warmed past 15 C.  in the late spring. Can be started indoors 4-6 weeks ahead of last frost. Keep soil trays at 20 C. Expect germination in 7-14 days. Line out plants in a sunny location and space at 18" apart. Plants are somewhat drought tolerant but evenly moist soils will produce fully branched plants. Seeds can be pre-soaked and scarified 12 hours before sowing both indoors or outside to increase germination.
