Coyote Tobacco (Nicotiana attenuata) is an annual plant native to the West Coast of the United States, including our home in Southern California. It was first brought to our attention by our friend Vangelis, a subsistence gardener and tobacco enthusiast from Greece. The plant produces pointed leaves and reaches approximately two feet tall when in flower. Can also be cured for smoked, but it’s more commonly propagated for its ecological role in attracting pollinators and deterring pests. Note, these seeds are finicky germinators, requiring advanced techniques of fire and smoke to germinate.
