Peruvian Wooly Tobacco

Nicotiana tomentosa

A deer resistant, dramatic, tall, gorgeous plant that is covered with thousands of deep pinkish-red, fragrant tubular flowers that attract pollinators – particularly hummers – like no other plant we know. Fast growing into a tall plant, or can be pruned to make shorter and bushier. Tobacco is used ceremonially by peoples throughout the Americas, and the leaves can also be made into a natural insecticide. One of our most favorite and popular offerings!
