Nicotiana alata 'Grandiflora' reviews
Stunning in evening shade
Reviewed 23rd February 2016 by Eleanor Cameron
I grew this for the first time last season for my white border in shade. It flowered for months all summer long and into November along with Antirrhinum White Giant and looked stunning, I have ordered more of both for this year.
