Mystery Plants on My Patio

I have absolutely no idea what these plants are. They come up every year. They grow fast too. They have lots of blossoms on them that only open up when the sun starts to go down. And I have no idea what they are. None.

This year I they’re white, pale pink, fuchsia and fuchsia and white spotted. They grow like gang-busters and bloom prolifically. I just have no idea what they are!

  1. They are four o’ clocks and they are all over our property.
    They are strong plants great and come back well: white, pink, red, yellow.
    Also you can collect their tiny black seeds end of season and make tons more.
    Bees and butterflies love them.

    • Thank you for the identification!!! I’d love to have some yellow ones! I have seen a lot more bees since they’ve been blooming. My hollyhocks seeds have started to dry out and break open. I’ve actually planted some of them. Soon, I shall be over-run with them! Glorious!

    • If these Four O’Clocks will grow on a super hot patio in New Mexico, and continue to bloom and grow in insane heat and almost total sun, it seems like they’ll grown anywhere Gloria!!!

  2. Have been trying to get yellow here in Florida for 7 years, if you do get some, please mail me a seed~
    This is the most indestructible flowers/plants I have ever seen.
    One of mine is over 6 feet tall and comes back each year, it is a white one and smells heavenly~
    It should grow just about anywhere, sun or shade and will normally come back.
    Just collect your little black seeds for other locations next year~

    • If I come across the yellow variety, you’ll get some seeds for sure! My pinks, whites and fuchsias are continuing to bloom beautifully!
