cristina's nicotiana fragrant cloud (divided) x 3 Blooming
Fragrant Cloud flowering tobacco has scented white flowers.
The oblong lance-like leaves are emerald green. In summer’s warmth, the rosette of leaves sends up a lightly branched stem that bears many tubular flowers with five lobes, each colored white with a hint of pale green. Flowers often remain closed in full sun but open in late afternoon and into dusk, releasing intense fragrance to help guide pollinating moths to the nectar. Seeds later form and will drop to sprout nearby when growing conditions are favorable.
Grow ‘Fragrant Cloud’ in full sun to partial shade situations in a moist, fertile and well-draining soil.
