Lime Green Nicotiana


Lime Green Nicotiana

Nicotina alata
(70-80 days) Annual. From the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, to farmstands, to friends’ yards, this nicotiana repeatedly caught our eye in summer 2021. While Only The Lonely is dramatic and fragrant, Lime Green exhibits a petite delicate beauty that can enhance a garden bed planting or stand alone in a pot. Elegant abundant upward-facing 2" star-shaped light chartreuse flowers upon 3' plants of contrasting green. Lightly scented flowers open in late afternoon and evening, early summer to early fall. Nice straight stems. Cutflowers may be too fragile for commercial growers, but perfect for casual home bouquets. Low maintenance, does well in full sun and partial shade. A favorite of hummingbirds. Self-sows.

Sow indoors 6–8 weeks before last frost, or directly into the garden after danger of frost. Press seeds into soil without covering. Can easily bloom within 10–12 weeks of sowing. Note: Occasional off-types with maroon or white flowers are possible. 6,000 seed/g.
