Four O Clock
FOUR O'CLOCK
Mirabilis multiflora

Also commonly known as "Colorado Four O' Clock," this upright perennial herb can be planted close together to form a beautiful groundcover arrangement. This short grass prairie wildflower has few competitors at being both beautiful and extraordinarily xeric; once established, this plant forms an enormous, deep taproot that makes it highly drought resistant, and thus it does not require frequent irrigation.
