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.

Review:

This was my first year growing Aztec Sweet Nicotania. I'll keep it in my garden forever now. I started the seed in my aerogarden. These seeds germinated better than any other seeds I planted. I moved them to the yard and they are doing great! They are blooming, smell wonderfully and those that get the most sun are a good 3-3 1/2 feet tall. Other are shorter but still beautiful. I get tired of spending money on seeds that don't sprout. These were my best seed investment in 2018. I love these and will get them in other colors next year.

What are the pros? Scented, hardy

What are the cons? Sticky but not too off-putting

Review:

I germinated these seeds in peat pods in January of 2017 indoors at a temp of 68*, since the seeds are so small and fresh I did not count how many I put in each pod, but each pod had 1-3 plants. I kept them under lights until after the last frost. I set the seedlings outside to get better light after the outdoor nighttime temps were above 45*. The seedlings experienced cold weather and on occasion were drown in water from rainfall. When the seedlings were about 1- 3" tall (did not get leggy) I set them out in the garden in poor and slightly amended soil with about 3 hours of full sun, the rest of the time they were in the shadow of a 6' tall fence and a 40' evergreen. The plants were not leggy either. These flowers performed beautifully, lots of scent, lots of flowers on wiry stems. I deadheaded them after they finished flowering, (Sept) but before they completely went to seed and they had a second flush of flowers. To me they are the perfect scented flower for my pollinator garden.

What are the pros? Lovely scent, easy to grow

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.

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!
