Description

A brilliant F1 variety, with pink flowers that change to white, with excellent disease resistance. Reliably self-sows at Perch Hill.

Nicotianas are a great family of very long-flowering Half-Hardy Annuals, many of them with lovely evening and night scent. They are moth pollinated, so will pour out the fragrance when the moths are around in the evening.

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.
