If you’ve ever missed the blooming of your garden flowers, you’ll probably remember this one. The Four O’Clock flowers bloom around 4 p.m. As long as you plant your white Four O’Clock seeds in a sunny place with good drainage, you can count on white flowers opening daily during its blooming season. They are hardy plants when they have enough sunlight and are resistant to insects and disease. Plant these seeds in full sunlight and don’t over-water. These flowers like dry soil. They do best when fertilized at least once a month and will grow very quickly when well nourished.
White Four O’Clock plants make great ground cover because of the width of the plant. Each plant can get as wide as 60 inches and can produce hundreds of flowers. These plants will grow into large plants that resemble shrubs. This makes them excellent backdrops for smaller plants. With white Four O’Clocks in the back row, there will be a wall of white flowers that will enhance any flowers planted in front of them. The seeds are packaged and germination tested for the current year.
