Woodland Tobacco

(Click on photo to enlarge.)
Nicotiana sylvestris seeds as fine as dust planted on top of the soil sprouted into miniscule plants. I pricked them from the plug and planted them in a larger container. I'm always amazed how life can be stored so compactly. Those are grains of sand in the photo not pebbles.

The flowers are not only attractive but fragrant at night. Plants are poisonous.
