What I call the Umbrellawort I have never seen bloom until today, June 23, 2019.  Others call it a Four O’clock Mirabilis, but there are too many Four O’clocks as it is, hence my Umbrella.  Check the pictures of Linearleaf Umbrellawort (Mirabilis linearis) in this section to see what it looks like before the blossoming, which must last about fifteen minutes.  The leaf shapes distinguish these two forbes.
