At first I was disconcerted that they were paler than the illustration seemed to show. However in a year when the dahlias nearby did poorly I was really pleased with the performance of the nicotiana and I liked the colour.

Superb colour and responded well to cutting back after the first flowering and is still flowering now

Overlooked final size,so bigger pot next year,flowers one of my favorite colours. Complimented Nicotiana Lime Green to make a interesting and attractive combination

These seedlings weren't very robust, rather frail and pale I'm afraid , so they had become dislodged and the leaves damaged in the (usually good) packaging during delivery. They didn't survive the following weeks but the weather wasn't great for my own seedlings this year either so it's difficult to make a true assessment on this occasion.

Lovely colour, but plants are not nearly so strong as whisper mixed, so tend to disappear in border.

The first delivery of plants were very damaged, but customer services sent out another lot which were much better. They turned into gorgeous plants, flowering all summer long.

Loved the colour. The plants struggled a bit due to the dry hot conditions.

Tried these this year, good germination, plants now flowering nicely. Good for mixed planting in pots, my only criticism is the colour; mine are all a dull pale plum colour, not as portrayed in the packet.
