Description

As with several nicotianas, this grows perfectly in sun or shade, which is where we often have it, in pots by our shady, north-facing house door. I love it in containers and cut as a delicate hovering butterfly above a contrasting bunch of summer cut flowers.

Care Tips

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