Four O'clock shock!

(Louise) Palm Bay, FL(Zone 9b)

I don't know about anyone else. but I love this plant and plant them every year. I love the old fashioned ones and the striped flower series. I have always avoided the limelight like the plague because they just didn't look that interesting on the package. Last spring I broke down and planted some and BOY was I surprised. This is one of my new favorite plants! The package does not do this plant justice at ALL! The color really lights up the garden and I even planted some near the pond in light shade and that looked spectacular. The foliage did not suffer from the late summer thrip spotting ,when the plants went to seed, like the old fashioned ones. They stayed looking great until frost and the neon fuschia flowers even looked pretty and very noticeable when not opened. I highly recommend this one. The leaves on some of the plants even had an interesting variegation of greens.
