Four o'clocks

These native narrowleaf four o'clocks (Mirabilis linearis) showed up in some salvias the back yard. According to the Native Plant Database, they're perennials! Cool! I found some growing on the city-side of our property two years ago ("New-to-me native").

Such a delicate looking flower - I love the color. I have Mirabilis jalapa, (naturalized not native,) and the sphinx moths do seem to enjoy them. I'm going to look for seed for these native beauties (now that I know they'll do well here). Gorgeous!

Neat. I had not heard of these before. Thank you for the introduction.

How lucky you are. And what a bonus that they are perennials. I have never seen those.
