Woodland Tobacco, Nicotiana Sylvestris
Clusters of long white trumpet flowers with a wonderful jasmine scent. Plants are stately, 5 to 8 feet, but don't need staking and thrive with no care in part shade. A lovely addition to a patio or porch used on summer evenings, when the flowers are perfumed with a sweet, hypnotic scent modern hybrids have lost. A beautiful American woodland native; you can let it self-sow in shady areas like the north side of a house, or under deciduous trees.
All parts are effective as a natural insect control: The leaves are sticky to catch whiteflies and other pests. Nicotine compounds in the leaves repel aphids. But mostly, I just love them for their graceful stance, huge leaves and lovely flowers, along with that hypnotic scent. Put one where you walk by often. Seed from my neighbor's garden marketed as "Only the Lonely", "Ghost Pipes" etc. 500 seeds
