(Nicotiana langsdorfii) Annual from Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. The most striking flowers we have seen on any Nicotiana: chartreuse green, in tubes that becomes suddenly bulbous and flare out widely, revealing anthers covered with blue pollen. Plant grows to three feet in height. Leaves reputedly smokeable.
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 50 seeds. Packed for 2013.
