Tobacco, Night Blooming Azteca (Nicotiana alata), potted plant, organic

$7.50

Family: Nightshade (Solanaceae)

Annual.  90 days to flowers

(Azteca Night Blooming Tobacco)  Elongated leaves form a loose basal rosette that gives rise to multiple upright branches that are stiff and self-supporting, flowering to 3 feet.  The white, heavenly scented flowers flare out in the evening and bloom all night long, sending trails of exotic essence out over the summer-warmed landscape.  The flowers last through the morning and collapse by midday, only to come on again that evening.  Space plants 3 feet apart.

    We had ordered Nicotiana alata and received it as well. The plant was doing well for 3-4 weeks andn now suddenly it does not look good. I have brought the plant indoors as night temperature is below 50F

      Good idea. Sometimes these do bloom in captivity, although they do best as a spring-planted annual.

      Hello Lorraine, Oh, most definitely. Anywhere with a warm summer. Humid evenings are adored by this plant. Richo

      Hi Kristene, Not really, there are many cultivars of Nicotiana that are better, including the Virginia Smoking Tobacco, the Havana, and the Walker’s.
