Nicotiana, 'Lime Green'
(Nicotiana alata) Velvety green tobacco leaves give rise to flower spikes of nodding chartreuse trumpet flowers that glow in any light. Add to that the absolutely intoxicating fragrance released into the evening air at dusk and continuing into the morning hours...*sigh* Each plant continually branches reaching a height of 3-4’ and produces masses of flowers. We suggest you plant a hedge…you will not be disappointed! A versatile cut flowers for arrangements.

Transplant out after last frost.
Note: Very hardy and long blooming until first frost! Will self-sow but has not been aggressive in our experience.
Cover lightly as light aids in germination.

Average. Prefers well-drained, and evenly moist soil.

These stems (sticky!) prefer to be cut while the day is cool and when around half the flowers are open. Expect a vase life of 5-7 days.
