Sylvestris is native to Argentina and is  often called Woodland Tobacco. It’s a vigorous plant growing up to 5 ft. with large 20″ leaves and sweet scented long drooping white flowers. Try growing this tobacco for mixing purposes only, as it’s not strictly a smoking variety. Its unusual flavor makes it a good candidate for blending cigarette tobacco.

A very attractive and fragrant plant that should be planted in every flower garden, whether you choose to smoke a bit of it or not.
