Nicotiana alata grandiflora
“Flowering Tobacco”

Nicotiana alata grandiflora Nicotiana alata grandiflora

How sad for all those newbie gardeners out there – for they may never know that “Flowering Tobacco” used to grow to 3-5’ tall, was deliciously scented, attracted butterflies, bloomed forever and was not only perennial but always self-sowed for lots of free “volunteers.” If we’re not careful and save our seed, this delightful heirloom may someday soon disappear forever! A time honored partner to old-fashioned roses and a shady garden favorite, plant in part to bright shade in hotter inland areas. Rich soil for best performance. Deer resistant. Self-sows!
