4 o'clock

I love this plant! Easy to grow and it surprises you with new flowers each evening. Plus their fragrance is the closest thing to a Jasmin, but not as overpowering. I started this 'batch' from one set of seeds and now, about five months later, the plants are already giving me more seeds that I am collecting to plant near each seating area and also to add some extras to the walkway into our home.

One word of caution, they like well-tilled soil. I planted some directly on an area that had compacted soil and nada happened. They are okay with poor sandy soil but just make sure to till it a little bit prior to dropping the seeds in. Or plant in fresh potting soil in a nice pot (or an ugly pot, if it pleases you more).
