Description

A subtle, classy, delicate ‘bedding’ plant, not delicate in its stature (it stands over 5 ft tall) but in the airy vertical emphasis it gives to a bed. This self-seeds through our dahlias every year and we love it.

Care Tips

Deadhead spent blooms regularly to prolong flowering. Handle with care as nicotiana may cause a skin or eye irritation. Harmful if ingested.
