The Four O'Clock is so-called because of the fact that the flower opens in the afternoon (around four o'clock) and stays open until the following morning. The beautiful flowers are funnel shaped and sweetly fragrant. A curious aspect of this plant is that different colored blossoms can be found simultaneously on the same plant. Additionally, an individual blossom may be splashed with different colors! Attractive to hummingbirds and sphinx moths, while deadly to Japanese beetles! The juice of the leaves has been used to treat wounds, while the dye obtained from the blossoms is used as a food coloring!
