(Nicotiana glutinosa) Annual from the Andes. “Peach Screamer” is our own name for this species; the peach-colored, bell-shaped flowers have wide openings that look like screaming cartoon mouths. These attractive blossoms grow on spikes until the frost. To 3-feet tall.
Planting suggestions: Press tiny seeds onto surface of already-moistened soil. Keep pots in a water-filled tray in a sunny, warm location. Avoid surface watering until germination, except with a mister. After first set of true leaves have sized up, thin to one plant per pot and transplant out. Give plants rich soil, water, and full sun. Can container-grow in a 5-gallon bucket.
Contains at least 200 seeds. Packed for 2013.
