The Yellow Four O'clock Flowers - Nature 119

 The name "four o'clock" is interesting for me. Actually, the flowers have another name that is Marvel of Peru.

Some neighbors said that 4 o'clock flowers are easy to grow and take care, hence good for the first start gardeners.

The name of 4 o'clock refers to flowers open about 4.00 PM or in the afternoon or in the early evening. 

Interestingly, the flowers stay open more than 12 hours when temperature quite lower, then they close again when the heat of sun comes.   

The flowers have several attractive colors, in addition to yellow, other colors are red, pink and white.

Four o'clock flowers can be planted by seeds. We may buy the seeds from nursery or garden centers or online at Amazone.

Seeds could be sown indoor or on the ground. It could take 2 to 3 months to have first flowers.

  1. Lovely flowers ! In French their name is "beauties of the night".
    And they are "beauties of the day" that open in the morning...
    Have a nice day !

  7. What a nice post. I also love plants and flowers, but this one is completely unfamiliar to me. Very interesting. I don't know if it can grow in Western Europe, but just looking at it and reading about it is enjoyable. https://momentsfrozentime.blogspot.com/

  9. I've never come across these "four o'clock" flowers before, but they are fascinating with their opening routine. Reminds me of nature's own timekeeping.

    Happy Friday🌼

  15. Never heard before of this blooms. These flowers are something special. In general, the color yellow brings so much sunshine to the mind, foreshadowing spring.

    And I am happy about your contribution to
