Detailed Product Info

On sultry summer nights, when the air stays saturated and the thunderstorms roll in the distance, this aptly named nicotiana releases a cloud of intoxicating, jasmine-meets-honey aroma that scents the air to great distances. We received this variety from Nikki Hill and Kollibri terre Sonnenblume, proprietors of Daggawalla Seed in Portland, Oregon. Their catalog, now closed, listed over 15 varieties of nicotiana; we trialed many and found this one to be a stunner. A bonus: blooms vary in intriguing ways from plant to plant.

Growing Instructions

Start indoors in a warm, sunny spot by sprinkling a few seeds per cell. Seeds take 10-14 days to germinate. Thin once seedlings have their first set of true leaves. Transplant out when plants are 2-4 inches high. A heavily fragrant, night blooming annual in shades of lavender and white.
