Grows about 3 feet tall and has small, starry white blossoms that release a sweet fragrance at dusk. The scent released attracts beneficial insects to the garden. A lovely old-time variety.

What are the pros? Lovely scent, easy to grow

What are the cons? Larger than expected

Review:

I've never grown nicotiana before, so I didn't know what to expect. It was extremely easy to grow from seed, and took off as soon as I planted it in early april. It looked a bit weedy before it started blooming, but now it looks and smells absolutely gorgeous. The only problem is that I planted it in a fairly shallow deck container thinking it would make a nice centerpiece, but it's absolutely taken over, and the shallow depth of the container was not enough to keep the top-heavy (and easily over 4' tall) plant upright in the wind; it's now flopped over unattractively.

Review:

Started seeds in late summer, planted in fall in mostly sand. It leafed out nicely with not much attention, just keeping watered during dry spells. Now March, we just got a rain and today she blooms! Very perfume-like fragrance. It'll be a keeper.

What are the pros? Lovely scent, attractive plant

What are the cons? Small seeds; tedious to sow

Review:

I first grew this Nicotiana for novelty's sake about 7 years ago. The flowers are beautiful and they do indeed smell amazing in the evening hours. As the other reviewer mentioned, do put it near a window, as you may enjoy the sight of hummingbirds coming to check out the flowers in addition to the heavenly fragrance wafting indoors. I had this plant in a 3 gallon pot when I first grew it, and during that time I had to move. When I brought the plant to my new home, my new landlord (and now lifetime friend) was convinced that the Nicotiana deterred mosquitoes, which had been a problem for her at her property for decades. The leaves are incredibly sticky, so from time to time insects get trapped on them. Sowing the small seeds is definitely annoying, but doing them in six-packs helps for ease of transplanting. I have seven healthy seedlings at this time, some I plan to let flower, and some I plan to experiment with for tobacco leaf curing. We'll see how it goes!

What are the pros? Ethereal scent

What are the cons? Very smalls seeds

Review:

Another great grower for the summer- in 10b won't really get going until after February or so and thrives March-October! So it is a great filler. Requires LOTS OF WATER! About the smell: it's like a sweet mixture of Tuberose and Jasmine, absolutely beautiful (it does, however, emit its smell at night). Plant around windows so the perfume can seep into the house in the balmy evenings. SEEDS ARE TRICKY to sow, but a pan with moist seeding mix and dusting over, keeping very moist, will eventually yield results. Sprout indoors. Once thin to another seeding bed and continue until they can be separated and planted outdoors. Lots of work, but worth it!
