Lavender Cloud Nicotiana
(Nicotiana alata) Annual or short-lived perennial. “Lavender Cloud” is our name for what appears to be a variety of Nicotiana alata. Flowers are lavender instead of white, but emit the same “fragrant cloud” of perfumey-sweet scent after dark. Attracts night pollinators such as hawk moths. Flowers continuously until the frost. To five 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
