Colorado Four O’Clock

Mirabilis multiflora crop

Do you have space for a big beautiful, expansive plant? A wall that could use something gracefully draping over it? Colorado Four O’Clock (Mirabilis multiflora) might be the answer. Draggin’ Wing customer Marlene Strong writes, “I’m continually amazed by this plant. Last year it got about 6 ft wide, but this year it is more like 8 ft wide!  It’s a good thing I don’t need that section of the patio!”
Four O’Clock likes sun, but can work in partial shade. It makes a huge taproot, dies back to the ground in winter and booms back ever more vigorous the following spring.
