the marvel of Peru, four o'clock flower

Wunderblumengewächse, Nyctaginaceae Mirabilis jalapa

Exotic mix (annual) the marvel of peru, four o'clock flower

The marvel flower opens its sieve-shaped blossoms only late in the afternoon, but it blooms until early dawn and spreads a dark, heavy perfume. Moths are attracted to this scent and pollinate the flowers. Humans start to feel very romantic in its presence, which also cannot harm! The flower itself is a marvel, since individual flower petals have various colours from one petal to another and even single petals are striped. An absolute must to get to know! Height about 100cm.
