A marvel from your own garden.

A home-grown marvel. The Marvel of Peru mix (Mirabilis jalapa) doesn't disappoint. A combination of the loveliest colours and most amazing fragrances in your own garden. You can also brighten up your balcony or patio with this Marvel of Peru mix. You will receive the Marvel of Peru bare-rooted in environmentally friendly sugar cane sacking. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. These are winter-hardy perennials, so they return every year. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Place the Marvel of Peru in full sun or partial shade. Water regularly so that the soil around the roots does not dry out.

Planting+
Mirabilis Jalapa grows well in the open garden. The tubers however, can also be planted in large pots or containers. Make sure that where you choose to plant them is average garden soil, not too fertile but well-drained and sheltered from the wind. Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil with a fork and it may help if you mix some lime through the loose soil. Place the Mirabilis Jalapa tuber at the correct planting depth with the growing tip upwards. Refill the plant hole and press it all firmly down. Water the plant directly after planting. Mirabilis Jalapa prefers a place in the sun, but will also flower in partial shade.Do not allow the soil to dry out.
Care+
Mirabilis Jalapa requires little maintenance. They are vigorous plants that in one year can grow 60-80 cm in height and width. Water regularly and fertilise once every four weeks. Faded flower stems can be removed to promote the growth of new (flowering) shoots.
Specifics+
In warmer climes, this '4 O'Clock Flower' is in principle an annual. You can harvest the seeds and sow them indoors in early spring. These seedlings would then bloom in the coming summer. If the seeds are not harvested, they will actually seed themselves and appear next year if there is a mild winter. In warm areas, the plant is often seen as a weed when the seeds are not harvested. All the seeds germinate.
