Lavender Cloud Nicotiana Flower
Very fragrant night-blooming annual in shades of lavender and white. On sultry summer nights, when the air stays saturated and the thunderstorms roll in the distance, this aptly named nicotiana releases a cloud of intoxicating, jasmine-meets- honey aroma that scents the air to great distances. We received this variety from the proprietors of Daggawalla Seed in Portland, Oregon. Their catalog, since closed, listed over 15 varieties of nicotiana; we trialed many and found this one to be a stunner. A bonus: blooms vary in intriguing ways from plant to plant.
