Plant details

This is a particularly interesting tobacco plant from Brazil. It has delightful sprays of nodding, bell-like flowers in an unusual apple-green colour. The leaves are very sticky. Plants are tall, with branching stems, and create a real focal point in the flower border. They are half-hardy annuals, which can be grown from seed indoors, with heat, and planted out after the last frosts, in late spring or early summer.
