We created the category True Annuals to distinguish annual seed strains from “tender perennials”. Annuals grow quickly from seed once night temperatures stays above 60F and the longer days of late spring take hold.
We have always grown the old fashioned seed annuals like Nicotiana, Browalia americana, etc. and have had them available for nursery shoppers. This year we will be offering a selection of seed grown annuals in 2.5” x 3.5” plant tubes for mail order shipping as well. Each unit equals 3 plants. If you want a total of 6 plants, order 2 units…etc.
There is a small window when these plants can be safely shipped: the end of May and early June. We will have a final update list of selections by early April. Click to be notified when the list is complete.
This Nicotiana is called Woodland Tobacco because it does very well as a filler plant for the partial shade garden. 4-5′ stalks bearing dangling candelabras of 2-3″ long white flowers are favorites of hummingbirds and hawk moths. This is one of those annuals which will reappear in your garden next season if you are cautious of not weeding out the seedlings when they begin to appear in early summer.
