~100 Purple Perfume flowering Tobacco seeds, Nicotiana alata, USDA Organic
A deep purple, star-shaped flower with odiferous wonderment. Pleasing to the eye and nose.
Scent is one way plants open our "Doors of Perception," reminding us of just how strong, multi-layered, and even "psychedelic" a scent can be. Purple Perfume Nicotiana heightens our senses with its richly-hued blossoms, velvety foliage, and mind-bending scent. The slender, trumpet-like flowers open into a starburst of deep purple stars from late afternoon to morning. Plant where you can enjoy regular hits of its soft, powerful aroma.
In spring, press the seed into potting soil in and keep warm and moist until germination. Transplant to the garden after all frost is over and space plants two feet apart. Fertilize any tobacco plant with manure or compost. Full sun, moderate water.
Cure mature leaves in a shaded outhouse for two to four weeks.
