Nicotiana alata 'Lime Green' AGM
Tobacco plant, lime green
Type/Hardiness Annual, Half hardy
Flowering period June-October
Height 18-24in/50-60cm
Light preference Full sun/light shade
Soil preference Moist, free-draining
Sowing time/depth Spring, Surface
A most unusual take on the familiar tobacco plant, this variety produces masses of rich, acid-green flowers. Mine are planted in a fairly shady area where they do very well, adding a touch of brightness throughout the summer and well into autumn. A good cut flower if you can bear to pick it.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow in spring, thinly on the surface of moist compost, covering with a dusting of compost or vermiculite. Prick out into individual pots or modules when large enough to handle. Acclimatise to outdoor conditions before moving to their final positions. Alternatively, sow direct in spring. Adequate watering will help reduce the possibility of mildew appearing on the foliage, but this has never been a problem for me.
