sweet four o'clock seed pod earrings
The rippled surface of the seed pod catches light from every angle.
White and purple flowers with a sweet smell that often bloom in the late afternoon. An unusual aspect of Sweet Four O'Clock is that different flower colors can be found on the same plant. Because of the late flowers, moths are the main pollinators for this species. Sweet Four O'Clock is native to the Southwestern United States and Mexico although it is now grown widely in gardens. It was cultivated originally by the Aztecs for medicinal and ornamental purposes.
Afternoon shade and the hum of insects. Mirabilis is Latin for marvelous.
