Gardengally, that is a 4 o'clock and that is the seed it gives off. They have a light pleasant fragrance and add lots of color to the gardens.

Gardengally? A new word meaning... legal gardenise? (whatever that means). Smiling

I have a few: Orchidiot (a person who loves orchids obsessively), cyber-wafting (how this message is getting to you).

My only problem with 4 o'clocks is that the seeds grow really well (and there's lots of them) and the roots get the size of watermelons (well, maybe not that big). Once you have them, they are there to stay. But there are some really great colors so plant more.

I agree with Daisyl. It took me years to get rid of the ones that were here when I moved in.
