DescriptionFour o’clocks thrive in full sun, meaning approximately six hours of direct sunlight on most days. They will tolerate partial shade, though the plants might become somewhat leggy and not bloom as profusely in locations that are too shady.These plants can grow in a variety of soil types. But rich, loamy, well-drained soil is ideal. And a neutral to slightly acidic soil ph is best.Do not let these plants dry out; water whenever the top 1 to 2 inches of soil becomes dry. But avoid overwatering, as soggy soil can cause root rot. Mulching around the plants can help to keep the soil sufficiently moist. Plants grown in containers will generally need more regular watering than those in the ground.Four o’clock plants thrive in warm temperatures and are often grown as annuals in cooler climates outside of their growing zones, where the plants die once frost and cold fall temperatures arrive. Humidity typically isn’t an issue for them as long as adequate soil moisture is maintained. Pinch back the main shoot when the plant is young to promote a bushier growth habit and more flowering. In dry weather, when the plants can get a little ragged looking, a shearing back by about a third will refresh them.
