Spectacular and highly fragrant 10- 15cm (4-6in) long 'trumpet' flowers of Mirabilis longiflora open at dusk and close the following morning, filling the garden with their night time scent. The white and pale pink flowers with their dark pink centres sometimes reach 20cm (8in) long and their curling, magenta stamens are even longer, often projecting up to 5cm (2in) beyond the flower tips.
When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost , 30cm (12in) apart.
For best results, provide a rich, light, well-drained soil in full sun.
Caution: harmful if eaten
