Subsequently, one may also ask, do bees like 4 o clocks?
Blooms open in the late afternoon and evening, hence the common name four o'clocks. Highly fragrant, in a range of colors, the four o'clock plant sports attractive flowers that attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
Furthermore, what is eating my four o clocks?

Simply so, are 4 O clocks poisonous to cats?
You are right: Japanese beetles love to dine on four o'clocks, and according to several university sources these plants are poisonous to them. They are also toxic to people and pets. They can cause vomiting and diarrhea if eaten and the sap can cause dermatitis.
How long does it take 4 O clocks to grow?
Four o'clocks are easy to grow from seed. Plants get to be two or three feet tall in sunny spots or in part shade, and they bloom from midsummer until frost. In relatively warm-winter climates, four o'clocks will come back every year from tubers that overwinter in the ground.
