Nicotiana hybrids

Nicotiana hybrids

Common name flowering tobacco
Family solanaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers many colors (summer)
Size 2-4'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil
From seed germinate at room temperature; self-seeds in our garden

We've grown several varieties of nicotiana from seed over the years, and as a result, we have different kinds popping up around the garden now. We just tolerate the white-flowered big-leaved ones, and prize the rosy-colored smaller varieties (offspring of Nikki seed strains). This year we raised plants from seed labeled Stonecrop mauve. The result was a rather interesting mixture with chocolate brown and lemon yellow flowers - not quite what we expected!
