We would not be without this beautiful American woodland native.

Stately plants from 5 to 8 feet with huge leaves and clusters of long white trumpet flowers.

All parts contribute to its effectiveness as a natural insect control: The leaves are sticky to catch whiteflies and other pests.

Nicotine compounds in the leaves make an excellent natural insecticide.

In the evenings the flowers are perfumed with a sweet, hypnotic scent modern hybrids have lost. A lovely addition to a patio or porch used on summer evenings. Or let is self-sow in shady areas like the north side of a house or under trees.

BOTANICAL NAME:Nicotiana sylvestris

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS :

Sow in flats in well-drained mix. Mix seed with ┬Ż cup of sand peat or potting mix. Prepare a flat or pots with soil, completely moist but not sopping.
