Default Yet another 'unknown plant'

Hi,

We have this plant growing in a pot, seed came from Spain I believe. We have no idea what it is and would appreciate some help.
Cheers in advance

Looks like Mirabilis jalapa, the four o'clock plant, named so because
the flowers open at 4o/c, tho' whether that's Greenwich Mean Time or not
I don't know ;~).
