White Shooting Stars Flowering Tobacco - Fragrance Beyond Words

Candelabras of drooping, bridal-white, long, shooting star flowers that cluster on graceful, bold stems. Vigorous, rosette-forming plant that typically grows 3-5 ' tall with pendant clusters of long-tubed, trumpet-shaped, white flowers that resemble shooting stars.

Flowers are legendary in their fragrance. It is not uncommon for their aroma to be noticed 20' downwind. Blooms summer to fall, providing good color and fragrance for late summer borders. Blossoms emit a special radiance at sundown, and an intoxicating, jasmine-like fragrance in the evening.

Very attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, especially at sundown when the flowers emit the strongest scent. The flowers are shaped like a long tube, flaring at the end into a five-petaled star formation.

History

Native to South America, particularly Brazil, Bolivia and Argentina, it became an ornamental garden plant in the U.S in the early 1800’s.

    Smells so good. This is a great plant in the garden. Also it attracted hummingbirds into the yard. A very large plant, would be good on a border or in the back of the garden, or near a patio where the scent can waft to those enjoying the evening.
