Noreen, my yellow ones have gone ballistic. However, I now have white and
pink but did not plant those so am assuming they are throw backs from seed
the yellow put out. Last winter when I put in the new patio the guys had to
dig out the dirt around my porch which is where my original yellow is
planted. I now have probably 50 more coming up where they dumped the dirt in
the back of the yard. They are all yellow, but a pink has come up right
beside the original and my neighbor, who also did NOT plant any has only
pink and white, which we are thinking came from my plant too. I find it all
intriguing, how the plant spreads itself. I do recall it setting a LOT of
seed last year. How long have you had yours? Maybe it just takes a while.

Andrea, I have all three of those colors as well.  In my experience  the 
white and yellow do not seem to put out as many seed, and multiply as much
the fuschia pink do.  Do you find this to be the case also, in your  
experience??  I also tried the multicolored and striped variety from seed  
available in packages at nurseries, and box stores.  These did fine for one
(one growing season), but didn't produce seed either, not that I noticed,  
and didn't come back.   Whereas the one colored (the Fuschia  pink, yellow
the white) are perennials here.

Bonnie-what seeds? I forget what I send people. LOL! I actually  have white,
pink, and yellow four o'clocks. They smell divine. I walk out  on my back
porch and there they are. One of my plants is probably four feet  tall and
wide. The hummingbird moths are all over it. I get dive bombed if  I'm out
there at the right time. Someone tried to tell me it was a night  blooming
jasmine. I just ignored them.
