Tobacco, Jasmine Scented (Organic)
Nicotiana alata. 70 days.
Bright white trumpet-shaped flowers bloom in the evening and practically glow at night—simply stunning in the full moon! But more significant is the amazing jasmine smell that is particularly strong at dusk as it begins to attract large moths for pollination. The scent is so strong you can smell it from 30′ away and would be great planted near your porch, under the bathroom window, or anywhere you want to enjoy the sweet perfume. It’s amazing to me that we gardened for over 10 years before we first experienced this flower. Really, it should be in every garden. Suitable for containers. Flowers are much larger than most tobacco flowers. Sticky resin and nighttime blooming make this not a good candidate for cutting or bouquets. Annual that self-seeds easily.
