Notes:

Beautiful dark pink flowers, blooms in the morning and reseeds prolifically! This shrub will die to the ground in the winter and comes back later in the summer months. It tends to love more shade than sun. Is this a native plant?

    Easy and reliable — they come in yellow and streaked also.

    Mirabilis jalapa blooms open in the afternoon, around 4:00 or later, hence the name. This certainly does resemble that though, albeit a bit small for a blooming specimen. If you’re sure that it blooms in the morning, and not in the late afternoon, it may be something else. Another possibility, if the plants are relatively short, is Mirabilis multiflora, Colorado Four O’Clocks.

    I think it is Four O’Clock flower – Mirabilis jalapa, Native of Peru but a really easy plant to grow here from seed. Rather tuberous root can survive Zone 7b in GA in a mildish Winter.
