Description: White-flowering ornamental tobacco that explodes with nocturnal fragrance. The splendid flowers lasts from summer through fall. Easily one of the sweetest-scented flowers, Nicotiana offers its intense aromas to the night, as it is pollinated by moths. Lovely, pendulous white flowers on 24-36" plants. Very easy to grow. Plants will reseed if left in the garden. 

  • Interesting fact: Nicotiana is a cousin to petunias!
