Saratoga Rose Nicotiana
Nicotiana alata. Impressive dwarf bushy plant. Upright dense trumpet star-shaped flowers ready to greet the hummingbirds. This series is the earliest and shortest for Nicotiana and loves the heat. Eye-catching colours for visual impact in the garden or containers, sun or shade. Height 10-12". This plant is poisonous if ingested.
Start inside 6-8 weeks before planting out. Sow seed on surface or cover very lightly. Provide light and a constant temperature of 70 degrees F. Transplant after last frost into a full sun or part-shade location. Space 8-12 inches apart.
Water during dry spells and dead-head regularly.
