Only the Lonely Nicotiana

The tallest, largest flowering nicotiana. Give it lots of room in the back of the beds. By mid-summer, stalks as thick as your finger shoot up 4 to 4 1/2 feet with enormous clusters of pendulous white blooms. These 4-inch trumpets bloom all summer, and their evening fragrance is very intoxicating.

It's just my opinion but I think any nicotinia is kind if a pain to start. I started these indoors, they came up and are outside blooming so I'm happy. It's not a real showy flower but I grow it for the scent and am happy with it.

I have purchased these seeds for many years-they are my favorite of all Nicotiana! Always do well. I have tried other companies but none measure up with these Pinetree seeds!

Seed order 2019

Slower growing than i had hoped. But it is ridiculously attractive to bees, hummers and people when it blooms. Try this in moonlight gardens.
