Agree with Greyfingers, the leaves and buds do look like 4 o'clock flowers. Their seeds are black round little balls that look like rabbit poop. I see these plants at the roadside everywhere near my place.
You have certainly been ripped off, blacklist the seller :angry:/>/>

I don't think so...
4 o'clock flowers come in yellow, orange, white, dark pink or mixture of pink + white, yellow + pink etc... Very hardy plant and bloom endlessly ^_^/>/>
