Q.Four O’clocks

Zone 28092 | Anonymous added on October 19, 2023 | Answered

I lived in a farmhouse where the former owner had planted numerous flowers and bushes. It was absolutely beautiful without us having to do very much! Anyway, there were four o’clocks that had the best aroma that you could smell from several feet away. I’m guessing they had been planted many, many years before we moved in. I have tried and tried, but I can’t find any with the same aroma. Do you have any suggestions?

Have you tried seeds from heirloom seed companies? Or a seed savers exchange? Look at reviews that might mention aroma. I checked for some and they mentioned the colors but not the aroma. The article below mentions a white variety with an orange blossom scent.
