Marshmallow Nicotiana

An interesting cultivar as each flower fades giving the effect of three colors on individual plants. Masses of rosy red, pink, and white ever-changing, sweetly scented tubular flowers are poised above the wiry stalks with a gracefulness that only nicotiana can provide in the garden. Grows to 4 feet.

Great

These tall plants take up quite a bit of space and add structure and height to the garden. Hummingbirds and bees come to them. Mine have self seeded and I can transplant these volunteers to the desired spot. Very easy to grow with pretty flowers.
