The scoop on Marvel of Peru | Four O'Clocks | Marabilis Jalapa

Success for the asking . . . these bushy garden plants are easy, bright, fun and fragrant. Marvel of Peru produces half-dollar size flowers in a variety of neon colors all on the same plant; some flowers are half one color and half another. Neat trick! The blooms open late in the day, hence the common name of "4 O'clocks" and the flowers emit a delightful scent. The bushes grow 30-40" in a season and attract birds, hummingbirds and butterflies. And the seeds create offspring if you choose to let them grow where they pop up.

Why Grow Marvel of Peru?

  • Super low maintenance; easy care
  • Bloom from late June through fall
  • Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies
Plant Marvel of Peru in a sunny to mostly sunny spot where there's nothing much happening now; out by the garage, along the back alley, by the neighbor's fence, next to the dog run . . . anywhere a little color, hummingbirds and fragrance would add to your summer enjoyment.
