This old garden favorite produces fragrant two-inch funnel-shaped white blossoms. As their common name suggests, they open in late afternoon and bloom until the next morning. The showy blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies. An interesting quality is the color variations. There may be flowers of different colors, or with spots and stripes of another color, all on the same plant. Also, these flowers may start out white, then change to pale violet as the plant matures. This tender perennial is commonly grown as an annual, though the tuberous root may be dug up in the fall and stored over the winter. Re-plant it after danger of frost in the spring, and the plant will flower even better when replanted from established roots.
