Fragrant Cloud Nicotiana
(Nicotiana alata) Annual or short-lived perennial from Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina. Flowers are white and do not emit fragrance until after nightfall, and when they do, they are perfumey-sweet, making a fragrant cloud indeed! Blossoms can close during the day, even appearing finished, but will open again after the sun sets. Attracts night pollinators such as hawk moths. To 5 feet high.
Planting suggestions: Press tiny seeds onto surface of already-moistened soil. Keep pots in a water-filled tray in a sunny, warm location. Avoid surface watering until germination, except with a mister. After first set of true leaves have sized up, thin to one plant per pot and transplant out. Give plants rich soil, water, and full sun. Can container-grow in a 5-gallon bucket.
Contains at least 50 seeds
