White flowering Nicotiana (Nicotiana sylvestris) is an annual flowering plant, native to the America's. This is a relative of the tobacco plants cultivated for cigarettes, snuff, etc. This plant produces a very fragrant, tubular white flower that attracts hummingbirds.
White flowering Nicotiana will start blooming early in summer, and continue until frost kills the plant, if you keep the plants deadheaded. Once established, the plant will reseed itself and come back each year.
This plant makes a very nice border / edge plant. The foliage is dark green, and somewhat "gummy". NOTE: All parts of this plant are poisonous.
Direct sow seed early in spring, after all danger of frost has passed. The seeds are tiny, so plant close to the surface. Germination can take up to 3 weeks, so be patient!! Seed can also be started indoors 6-8 weeks before your last frost is expected.
SAVE YOUR OWN SEED: Allow flower heads to dry and form seed pods, which will be filled with tiny,round black seeds. Collect these seed heads as soon as they are thoroughly dry, and before the seeds fall out. Store in a cool, dry place.
