& Maintenance Tips

Nicotiana Starmaker is a half-hardy annual that can grow in full sun or partial shade. Nicotiana prefers average, well drained soil. It needs about 6 hours of sun a day to bring out its good looks. Nicotiana will bloom repeatedly through fall. You should remove spent flowers before they go to seed to contain the spread of the plant. Mulch to reduce weeds.
