Woodland Tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris)
There are several varieties of tobacco, but among all of them, wild tobacco stands out as a giant. The plant is growing rapidly. The erect stems can branch. They have large, long, oblong, light green leaves, while the flowers, grouped in tight panicles, are a beautiful pure white. As night falls, their scent intensifies and attracts moths.
