An old favorite whose brilliant trumpet-shaped flowers open in late afternoon, remain open all night and usually close before noon the next day. Also remains open on cloudy days. Produces colourful blooms of white, shades of red, pink and yellow. Sow directly at a permanent location.
Mirabilis Jalapa is a large, bushy, hardy plant with neat and smooth leaves that is excellent to use as low hedges or as temporary shrubs. Especially nice in the evening fragrance.
