We love these soft mocha blooms with sweet jasmine scent irresistible to hummingbirds as well as humxns. Neither tall nor small, Hot Chocolate Nicotiana thrives in containers as well as garden soil, dramatic along edges and nourishing beneficial pollinators wherever they are planted. Easy to grow, nicotiana is impressively drought tolerant and blooms abundantly even in mediocre soil. Organic Hot Chocolate Nicotiana also has one of the longest bloom times we’ve ever witnessed, blossoming from early July through early September, often longer with frequent harvesting.
Breathe deep! And their seeds are easy to save, as well.
