These lovely flowers wave in the breeze scenting the pergola seating area with the heady scent to jasmine. When you come visit, we will sit under the pergola and enjoy all the scented white flowers.
This garden area is designed as a night garden showcasing white flowers like white Bougainvillea and this Aztec Nicotiana.
This is the first time that I grew Nicolina. The jasmine fragrance is light, never overbearing. It was the start of the containers, crowding out the shy flowers and taking center stage.
Aztec Nicotiana is so named because the Aztecs considered the plant sacred and medicinal.
Hummingbirds, butterflies and bees love this plant. This flower is a good choice to plant near vegetable gardens because it attracts so many pollinators.
Becky, I’m sending these flowers in a tall, clear cylindrical vase to accent the height and grace of this flower.
*Becky Funke is in a hospital that does not allow flowers in the rooms. So, not to be deterred, I’ll send them on Pinterest. You can stop by her CaringBridge site to leave well wishes and get updates. Her 3 daughters, keep the site up to date.
