Four O Clocks (Mirabilis jalapa)


4 o clock broken colorsLightly scented jasmine fragrance.

Four O Clocks have always been a part of my life. Which is to say, they’ve been around for ever. When I was a child they were solid bright pink and yellow. Todays Four O’ Clocks are still beautiful, timely and fragrant.

I bought the seed at Renee’s Garden http://www.reneesgarden.com/ . These “Broken Colors” are producing lots of seed right now. And, with any luck, they will self-seed where they are growing. If not, I’ll plant some of the fallen seed I’ve swept up on the sidewalk.

The seed are easy to see and easy to collect. Their delicious jasmine fragrance will have you looking for reasons to walk by them. As heirlooms, you can expect the new plants to look like the old plants.

Renee’s Garden seed is 40% off of all 2013 seed right now. Buying these seed is a good deal, they will grow for you next spring.  Check out your other favorite seed suppliers, many have seed discounts this month.

Becky is in the hospital that does not allow flowers in the rooms. So, not to be deterred, I’ll send them on Pinterest.

I can add a bit of description or comments here, where there is room.

Grandpa Ott’s Morning Glories.  Ah, a flower for mornings and sometimes a cloudy day. This is a sweet old heirloom.

Morning coffee on the deck is a delight. The hummers love these blooms. What a great way to start the day. Good coffee, dozens of flowers, buzzing hummingbirds.

Morning glories were hard to establish here at Hobson Estates. Once they were well established, there is no getting rid of them. And that’s AOK. A honey bee was the first morning visitor to this Glory. Thats why there is a dusting of golden pollen on the bloom. I have seed, if you would like some, just ask. The seed originally came from Renee’s Garden. She also has several other colors of Morning Glory.
