Description

The most highly scented tobacco plant you can grow. It has delicate, creamy white flowers and will wilt in bright sunlight, so best planted with a little shade.

Nicotiana are a great family of very long-flowering half hardy annuals, many of them with lovely evening and night scent. Nicotiana are moth pollinated, so pour out the fragrance when the moths are around.

Please note: This is harmful if eaten.

Care Tips

Picking the flowers will encourage lateral growth and prolong flowering. Keep well-watered to help avoid any fungal diseases.
