About This Image

we call these Shooting Stars but there are several other "real" names, -- Nicotiana Sylvestris, Flowering Tobacco. These very large plants bear beautifully scented flowers. their scent is especially lovely on warm summer evenings. These overwintered for a couple of years now.

meant to say, Irene Ann, would love to send you some seeds of these, but not sure about how they'd get thru the mail these days.

thanks Janice, they came back again really well this spring/summer. Wanted to team them up with pink or white Cleomes, as that makes a great combination, saw it that way in Vancouver a few years ago, - but can't find any Cleomes : )

Oh I would love the seeds,Im not sure what can come across border they probably would frown on plants of any kind but I would think seeds would be alright, Ill ask around. Carol

thanks Carol, these have self seeded all over the place, even in one of the containers our Larch tree is planted in, all around the rim. Wish you were closer, would be happy to give you some plants! am wondering how I could send you some seeds, not sure if you can send across the border. Also could send you some of those Nigella seeds too, probably.
