Nicotiana sylvestris (Woodland Tobacco) [50 Seeds]

(2 customer reviews)


Germination Information: Sow the tiny seeds on the surface of moist growing medium and gently press them in; do not cover. Start them indoors in late winter to mid spring and set them in a warm, bright place to germinate. I don’t recommend direct-sowing, as the seeds are so very tiny and could easily get covered up or washed away. Once you get the plants to flower, though, they can readily self-sow in the same general area if you let the seeds mature in the garden. (Each plant can produce thousands of seeds, so the odds are much better of getting volunteers!)

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Woodland tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris), also called flowering tobacco, produces rosettes of broad, bright green leaves, then shoots up to 5 to 6 feet tall in summer. The stout stems are topped with nodding, trumpet-shaped, white flowers from midsummer to frost. The pale flowers are particularly fragrant in the evening, making this a perfect addition to a “moon garden.” Full sun to partial shade. Woodland tobacco is usually grown as an annual, but it may return from the roots in mild-winter areas.

Collected in August 2022. At least 50 seeds.

    Like a weed here, vigorous re-seeder. Scattered seed on a west facing alley bank among wild asters. No sign yet.
