Nicotiana

Nicotiana
Flowering tobacco, Jasmine tobacco

Though I had seen some nicotiana at gardening shops, I didn't find one of my favorite color. When I found this, I was interested in its color and bought it. This color is called "lime green", and it seems to have been produced with biotechnology.
After the government monopoly of tobacco was revised, we were allowed to plant this flower to enjoy at hand.
I don't know if we can make tobacco with this flower. I don't think to make it, of course.

It has been growing healthy in spite of the strong wind and heavy rain. I hear that it doesn't have the low temperature resistance, but I'll carefully watch it through the winter.

Language of the flower.     Protection, touching
