Speaking of Four-O-Clocks, do I want to plant them or are they a bit of a "thug" once started? I've read pros and cons about them. They would be kind of borderline perennials here in my Zone 7 area.
Rickardo, don't know what your weather is doing there, but they are heat-loving plants. Be sure and soak the seeds in warm water overnight to "jumpstart" their germination.

I direct sow four o clocks around mid May. Mine is limelight. Very low maintenance. I think it flowers early August. I'll have to check my pics.
