(High Desert Four O’Clock, Maravilla) Herbaceous desert perennial. Native to the American Southwest. Produces myriads of extraordinary, tubular, flaring purple flowers, from a thick, creeping stem with leathery, olive-green leaves. If seeds are desired, several plants must be grown–these are obligate outcrossers. Traditional usage (Native American): appetite suppressant. Plant prefers full sun, poor and dry soils; elevation tolerant. Light retards germination. Sow 1 inch deep in spring or summer. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart. Flowers to 1 foot.
