Nicotiana 'Tinkerbell'

Tobacco Plant, Flowering "Various" (Nicotiana)

Flowering Annual - Edible?: Inedible

In Tuesday 29th May 2012

  • Planted Out by Margaret, Tue 29th May '12

Thompson & Morgan say of these "A Breeding Breakthrough in Nicotiana Tinkerbell demands closer inspection, as the clusters of dusky-rose petals have lime-green backs and unusual azure blue pollen in the centre of each flower. Ideal for adding height and interest to borders, flowering over a very long period."

These plants were given to us as plugs from West Ham Park nursery. I was a bit worried about the name but they are actually quite magical!
