We were excited to finally grow our first crop of sylvestris or what's commonly called woodland tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris), as it had been missing from our otherwise eclectic selection of tobacco species offerings. We expected the plants to blossom white, but discovered many of the long, trumpet-shaped flowers were shades of pink and purple as well. Thus rainbow sylvestris tobacco was born. The blossoms are fragrant and the plants are ornamental, but we‰۪ve known people who cure and smoke this tobacco species too.
75 days from transplant to flower. Annual.
Grown at Mano Farm in Ojai, California.
