Add this flower to your moon garden for a lovely fragrance

The tobacco flower, or flowering nicotiana, is a statement plant in your garden thanks to its height. It’s not a squat little flower mound. Instead, it grows 3 to 5 feet tall. Since the fragrance is only released during the evening, plant it near your patio or balcony so you can enjoy it during the nights you stay outside longer. Or if you’re not one to sit outside, you can also plant it near windows so it can waft inside the house. However, keep in mind these bloom best when they have access to full sun throughout the day, so choose a spot that doesn’t get covered in much shade. If you can’t find a location like that in your yard, you can also plant these in large containers, allowing you to put them wherever they’ll get the most sun. 

If you’re growing it from seed, you will be happy to know that it grows pretty quickly, so you won’t have to wait long to enjoy your blooms. The tobacco flower can be planted in USDA zones 9 to 11 and should be sowed in late February or early March, after the last frost has passed. Make sure not to compact dirt over the seeds; they should be lightly covered to allow plenty of sun and airflow. The tobacco flower is drought tolerant, so it won’t wilt if you forget to water it for a week, but will flourish if it receives consistent watering.
