    These are also called “four o’clocks”. They are easy to grow from the seeds. Really nice flowering plants.

    You’re very welcome! If you get a plant with different colored floweres. and set it next to your plant, they cross pollinate easily and you may get some interesting looking flowers. Aloha, Dave

    Thank you very much for identifying this plant. We searched all over the web and were unable to find it. Many of our neighbors who received small “mystery plants” from us will be happy to know what it is as well.
