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.

Caution: harmful if eaten

Sow seeds from February to April.Sow seeds on the surface of lightly firmed, moist compost in pots or trays and cover the seed to its own depth with compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and put in a warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 7-21 days.

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.
