Yep, sure did. I sure hope they do well. I put out the ones I had growing under lights, plus I directly sowed a pack outdoors that my daughter bought me as a gift...kalidescopes. I have never seen this variety in bloom before, they look beautiful on the package, I can't wait [grin] Kalidescope - Four 'O Clocks

Those are very pretty. I've never seen them. I'm going to look for some seeds too.

Those are sooooo pretty!
Would it be too late for me to start seeds here in zone 6?
Gotta go look for some tomorrow...

I'm one who never thinks it is too late to plant a flower seed:) If I have to I will bring them indoors if they bloom later than the norm...then I enjoy them indoors. I put them in a large heated sunroom inside. I also winter sow seeds & force bulbs to enjoy indoors. But I wouldn't say it is too late in the year right now. I am zone 5 & just putting my gardens out, some I am waiting till later in the month...we have cold weather for a long time here.

I agree Chrissy. Last year a friend found a half pack of Cosmos seeds during August. She gave them to me, I put them out and had Cosmos the first of September. They weren't as tall as usual, but they sure were pretty.

Jiffy ~

I went to a large WalMart today, and they didn't have any of the kaleidoscope
4 o'clocks, but they did have "limelight" -
rose flowers and chartreuse foliage.

Has anyone grown these?
Should I start them indoors, or just start them outside now?

here is a link to what they look like:

Those are gorgeous Lynne:) I have never grown that variety, but I imagine they will do best being direct sown into the ground. That's what I am doing with the most of mine & they are all doing great.

Thanks Chrissy!

I put 1/2 in a moist towel in a plastic bag, and the other 1/2 I'll direct sow. I'll let you know which method works better.

lynne, if they still have them when i go back, do you want some?
by plants 'n pots on May 07, 2004 11:22 PM
Thanks so much, Jiffy - how sweet of you to offer [kissies] - but I think I'll pass this time. I've never grown 4 o'clocks before, so I think I'll give this variety a try first since I have them.

Here's an update on my limelight four o'clocks.
I have them in a hanging basket on a pole off my deck (took it down for the picture). They get sun from 10a.m. until sunset and are doing great.

This was taken at 7:30p.m. today - a very overcast day -
no flash or touchups - sorry it's so blury...
