My flowers 2013

This is tall nicotania, Only the Lonely.  I have a feeling it won't be lonely next year because the seeds are a fine powder (like snuff, if you know what that is....my grandma, Minnie B.  King dipped it). I never tried it myself.  Love from Michigan.

Hi Peggy...I have one of these plants in my garden and it produces these cool flowers all summer long. I got mine at Bordines and plant one every year. They really pop all alone and get very tall.
Yours is lovely.
Hope your having a great Summer. This coming week will feel more like Summer instead of Fall.
~Enjoy~

Does it smell good? I tried to grow it once but with no luck. It has to love the heat to grow down here!!
