Purp, remember during summer you started a thread or left a post, 'can't recall which,' about Mirabilis/4o'clocks??
Anyway, you got me thinking..Although I have hardy Mirabilis, I went to Super-Seeds in Maine, well, to their site, didn't drive to Maine, lol, and found Peruvian Mirabilis. Bought a couple packets...when they arrived, I sowed, even though it was late.
They're annuals here, but worth planting.
Here's a photo..not a very good photo though.
How are yours doing? Are they dormant yet?
