Bella Di Notte, Beautiful Night Multicolor Four O'Clocks

Bella Di Notte, Multicolor Beautiful Night also known as Four O'Clocks.  Bush perennial plant with plain but brightly colored flowers.  The flowers open at sunset and close at sunrise. A charming garden flower that was popular in the past but is rarely seen today. The flowers stay closed during the day, then open wide in late afternoon, hence its common name. Incredibly fragrant. Attracts hummingbirds. Tender perennial. 24” tall (70 cm).

Start seed indoors and transplant at 9” spacing. The tuberous roots can be dug in fall, stored dry and replanted the next year. However, the roots and seeds contain a toxin and should be handled with care. Some people may experience mild dermatitis from handling the roots.
