A tall annual also known as a Tobacco plant with trumpet-shaped flowers in white that emit a wonderful aroma in the evening. Grows well in full sun or partial shade and is beneficial to both wildlife and pollinators.  If you do not want the plant to self-seed, you will need to give it regular, thorough waterings and remove the spent flowers at least twice a week.

It is recommended to wear gloves when handling these beautiful flowers because both the foliage and the stems have the potential to irritate the skin.
