Nicotiana alata 'Nicki Bright'

Dwarf Flowering Tobacco, Nicotiana affinis

Perfect for hot and humid climates, these poisonous long-bloomers are beautiful in leaf and flower. The often sweetly-scented annuals and perennials have clusters of star-shaped flowers in red, white, green, and pink. The flowers grow above large, light green, oval leaves covered with sticky hairs in summer and early fall. Many modern annual varieties bloom during the day and have no scent. For the night garden, the flowers of the very fragrant Nicotiana alata 'Grandiflora', like some other varieties, open in the evening. These strictly ornamental plants are distant relatives of smoking tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum). Plant seeds or plants only after soil has warmed. Fertilize early and regularly. Some types seed themselves. All parts are poisonous if eaten.
