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.  Press seeds into soil surface and keep moist and in the light until germination.  Sow seeds indoors 6 weeks before your last frost and transplant out to garden after the soil warms up.  Space plants 3 feet apart.

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