Four o?clock, which goes by several names, including Marvel of Peru and the botanical name Mirabilis jalapa, is a no-fail garden Flower. Most gardeners treat the bushy plants as annuals, though they develop fleshy tubers in the south and come back year after year. They grow to a manageable 2 to 3 feet in height, and sport flowers in a fascinating variety of colors, including marbled bi-colors. The Common name "four o?clock? came About because the flowers habitually open in the late afternoon, remaining open into the night. They are sweetly scented, and a favorite of hummingbirds.

Four o?clocks thrive in full sun, but will also tolerate some shade. Like many plants, they prefer fertile, well-drained soil, but are tolerant of a wide range of conditions. They flourish in the heat of summer.
