Nicotiana Purple Perfume
Annual/16-20 inches Nicotiana Purple Perfume exudes an intoxicating fragrance at night, long lasting in landscapes and containers. This looks remarkably like a unique deep purple nicotiana that showed up in many gardens several years ago. Next thing we knew we had an open pollinated AAS selection.
Planting Directions: Sow indoors 6 to 8 weeks before your last frost or transplanting. Plant seed on soil surface and do not cover as Nicotiana needs light to germinate. Maintain a soil temperature of 70? to 75? until germination, then grow on at 60 degrees until ready for transplanting. Direct sow in the garden after the last frost. Transplant or thin 18-24” apart. Plant in moderately fertile soil, full sun or light shade. Water regularly especially during hot dry summers and deadhead often.
