Nicotiana 'Lime Green'

Plant details

Nicotiana alata 'Lime Green' is a vigorous but short-lived tender perennial. It bears broad, spoon-shaped leaves and large, funnel-shaped, lime-green flowers. During the day the blooms wilt, but from early evening onwards they perk up and emit a seductive fragrance. The flowers are a magnet for night-flying moths. It makes a spectacular cut flower.

For best results grow Nicotiana alata 'Lime Green' in a sheltered spot in well-drained soil in full sun. It's ideal for growing at the middle of an herbaceous border, and can be also grown in large containers on the patio.
