Tender perennials from South America. All are grown as annuals, but they may live over in mild-winter areas. These are upright-growing plants with large, soft, oval leaves; both foliage and stems are slightly sticky. Flowers—very fragrant, in some species—are tubular, typically flaring at the mouth into five pointed lobes; they appear near tops of branching stems in summer. They usually open at night or on cloudy days, though some kinds open during the day. Some nicotianas reseed readily.Nicotiana sylvestris
