Availability: In Stock
This tall, outstanding plant makes a bold statement! Its very large leaves and unusual flower clusters create a dramatic look in the garden. Lovely in a white garden or planted with equally tall or colorful flowers like delphiniums. The flowers are very fragrant from late afternoon into evening and eye-catching in the moonlight. Attracts pollinators, especially butterflies and hummingbirds!

pretty white flowers

5 out of 5 stars Jul 28, 2019
I started these outdoors and had good germination. The leaves are very large and soft. The white flowers are varying lengths (some quite long for a flower). I grew them for night moths, but think the hummers would like them too.

I ABSOLUTELY WILL GROW EVERY YEAR! Easy to start from seeds, and feeds the humming birds, butterflies, and beautiful moths! Seems to keep tomato horn-worms off my tomatoes when planted about 20-30 away.

cool plants

Very striking plants, but the fragrance is not all that pronounced. Our's are in full sun and over five feet tall, blooming like crazy, but seem absent of pollinators. The sweet allysum has more nose power. Will plant again as they are so cool.

This plant is exquisite in the beautiful trumpet shape, white dangly, sweet smelling flowers. The picture on the seed packet does not do this magnificent flower justice. My plants are over 3 feet tall; but the glory of this Plant is not the flower, but the leaves (tobacco) that the Hopi Indian smoked. It was thought the smoke Burning and spiraling upward was able to reach the ancients. Not an easy plant to grow as the seeds are as fine as powder.

Second attempt trying to grow this seed. Didn't have any luck first time.
Robert L. Garcia from CA
Owner Response: Hi Robert, We are sorry you didn't see any germination with this seed with your first sowing. It is important not to bury these seeds but just press them into the soil surface as the packet recommends. Because the tiny seeds are so close to the soil surface the soil around them dries out more quickly so it is also important to water regularly which can be a few times a day to maintain consistent moisture while seeds are germinating. Quality is very important to us. Rest assured that our seeds are tested frequently to ensure their germination rate exceeds both federal and our own standards. Please don't hesitate to contact us to troubleshoot issues like this, it often just means a small tweak to be successful, and we are happy to help! Happy gardening!

I love these because they are one of the only things that are still green and going well into the Midwest fall. The White flowers are so pretty in the moonlight; and the leaves reminds me of cigars when I dry them and toss them on bonfires. You won't regret getting this flower.

Started these in a cold frame early April. seeds germinated well but remained tiny till late May when I was transplanting everything out in the garden so I gave up. Definitely one of the harder ones to grow among seeds I started this year.

Striking success.

The Indian Peace Pipe Nicotiana is such a striking plant. I put two of them in pots on each side of my front door and a few in different areas of my garden. Some were started in a green house and I also grew some using winter sowing. I've just trimmed the greenhouse plants and the winter sown plants are just flowering. I'm deadheading daisies while my peace pipes push up with white cosmos and cleome. Will definitely plant again.

Super easy to grow. They get huge! I had mine in pots and had to tie them to a structure so they didn't blow over. I suggest only putting these where you want them to grow forever because the seed is like dust and blows everywhere around the plants. When I was done with them, I cut them down to the ground and they have grown back already! They smell great and the hummingbirds love them!

It took a little under a year, but she's finally starting to bloom and I'm estatic. What a great plant! Juicy leaves, beefy stems, sweet, delicate flowers. Very beautiful! Well worth the wait!
