Nicotiana sylvestris Clusters of drooping tubular white blossoms perfume the garden day and night. Also known as Woodland Tobacco. Arrived in cultivation from Argentina in 1899 and offered by Geo. B. Haskell Co. of Lewiston, Maine, for a nickel per packet in 1904. In dwarfing nicotiana, breeders took away its fabulous fragrance. Only the Lonely, a stately 5', delivers the full powerful scent its more compact cousins lack. Plant it near a door or under your bedroom window where you can enjoy the aroma during the night. Germination is 10–12 days at 65–70°. Light enhances germination. Grow on at 50–55°. Annual. ~29,000 seeds/g. ①
