Annuals, Perennials, Flowers
Strong-looking, mounding plants with the substance and character of shrubs—albeit only seasonal or temporary ones. In summer, branch ends bear clusters of trumpet-shaped, 2-in.-long flowers that open late in the afternoon. Plants are killed to the ground by frost but resprout from their large tuberous roots. Sow seeds in fall or or spring. Plants self-sow freely.Mirabilis multiflora
