Nicotiana Indian Peace Pipe HEIRLOOM Seeds

Nicotiana sylvestris

Item #1120

Perennial (Tender), grown as an annual. This tall, striking plant makes a bold statement in the garden. Its very large leaves, and unusual flower clusters create a dramatic look in the garden. Lovely in a white garden, or planted with the equally tall, purple flowering verbena, Brazilian vervain, or delphiniums. The flowers are very fragrant from late afternoon into evening, and eye-catching in the moonlight! Attracts pollinators. Tender perennial in USDA zones 10 and warmer. Deer resistant.
