(24-36" tall) Here's a favorite from your grandmother's garden. Four O'Clocks are world famous, and sometimes called the 'Marvel of Peru'. They are native in Peru, and the 'Marvel' part is because these short, bushy plants open lovely tubular flowers in several colors--the same plant may have two or three colors in bloom at any given time. These fascinating flowers can be grown from seed, but with our bulbs (which form in time when you plant the seed), they grow much more quickly, giving you months more of the flowers. Simply lift the bulbs in fall like dahlias, and replant for more flowers the next spring.
