Nicotiana sylvestris- evening scented Tobacco

Mmmmm. Tobacco. Well. this smells not like an ash tray, but more like a bouquet of Jasmine. This tall, fragrant candelabra-flowered tobacco mysteriously self seeded in the garden. I mean, I have had the green flowered Nicotiana langdorfii self seeding in this bed for nearly 2 years, but this seedling emerged, and thankfully I didn't weed it out, for I do enjoy its scent and stature. Nicotiana, generally perform best when either self-seeded, or when seeds are sown, in situ, where they are to grow ( I just wanted to be able to say 'In situ'.).
