Four O'Clocks, also called 'Marvel of Peru', are low-growing, bushy plants with flowers that bloom in several colors on the same plant - often on the same trailing stem! The beautiful, trumpet shaped blooms open every afternoon (around 4 o'clock) and have closed by the next morning, making them a unique and fun addition to your garden.

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. Growing Four O'Clocks from bulbs ensure a long bloom time, and months of delightful blooms.
