Perfume Hybrid Mix Flowering Tobacco Seeds

Pack of 500
Item #01405-PK-500


Loves hot, humid weather

Out-of-this-world fragrance plus large blooms and plenty of them—this Flowering Tobacco has it all, and it's just waiting to show off in your sunny garden or containers.

Usually Nicotiana is selected for either scent or blooms, but Perfume Hybrid Mix was chosen for BOTH. What a great idea—summer-long blooms in 5 bright colors on neat little plants just 20 inches tall and 12 inches wide.

If your summers are hot and humid, Flowering Tobacco is the annual you must grow. It thrives on the very same weather that makes others flop and give up the ghost. And the scent is sweet without being cloying, evocative of old-fashioned cottage gardens. You will love it.

These blooms are 2 inches long, shaped like magnificently long trumpets, and very, very abundant. The colors include blue, lilac, lime, red, and white, adding some unusual hues to the usual palette of summer annuals. And unlike some Flowering Tobaccos, these blooms face upward, so you can enjoy their full splendor in planters, along the front of the border, edging the walkway, or dotted around the patio garden. They love sun, but can tolerate partial shade too. Could any plant be more accommodating?

Start these seeds indoors in late winter and set them out when the warm spring temperatures arrive, spacing plants a foot or so apart. They will bloom reliably all summer, not resting until the cold weather sets in. And their fragrance will fill the garden, generously lending its sweetness to nearby unscented annuals from zinnia to cosmos.

This seed comes as a "pellet". "Pelleted" seeds are small seeds that have been clay-coated to make them larger and more uniform in size and shape, making them easier to handle when planting.
