Nicotiana sylvestris full sun

Discovered in Argentina around 1898, this striking ornamental tobacco plant is a perennial in warmer climates and an annual in cooler areas. Large, slightly sticky, bright green oval leaves grow on tall, upright stems, topped with drooping clusters of pendulous, intensely fragrant, long tubular flowers, which flare to five-pointed stars at the end. A dramatic presentation wherever it is planted, we show it off with Salvia ‘Purple Majesty’ and Euphorbia mellifera.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 5' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
