Does anyone recognise this plant please

Valencia & Tenerife, Spain Es

It grows from rhizomes to around 2ft tall and can be up to 2ft wide and has smooth leaves. I have both pink and white plants, but next door also has pink flowers with yellow stripes. The flowers are quite small, open in the morning and close up during the afternoon and night. I live in Valencia, Spain, and it doesn´t mind the hot temperatures at all.




i thought i had answered this bt the photo helps.
is it miriabilis? google the images and see if it matches.

Thanks Seaburngirl, I´ve been trying to find this for a couple of years. I Googled it and they also came up with the name Clavillia (Mirabilis jalapa) with a picture just like my pink one. Are these the same family?

thats the plant i meant but i was doing the spelling from a foggy memory. so they are the same species just different colour variants.
