Flowering Tobacco, also referred to as Night-scented Tobacco, was introduced into garden cultivation in England in 1829.This self-seeding annual bears sweet-scented, white flowers in summer and fall, which open only in the evening or during the cooler parts of the day. The fragrant flowers attract hummingbirds, and moths which pollinate at night.
