Flowering Tobacco Starlight Dancer
Flowering Tobacco ‘Starlight Dancer’
This beautiful variety has such a fitting name. Long, tall stems carry slightly nodding, glowing white flowers with pale chartreuse throats and outer petals. The pretty, star-shaped blooms add an element of sparkle and movement to arrangements. Elegant and tall, this plant is loved by pollinators and hummingbirds and will flower all summer long when deadheaded regularly.

Blossoms are fragile, so take care when harvesting. Harvest when ⅓ of flowers are open on a stem. Flowers are prone to wilt, so harvest during the coolest part of the day and place into water with hydrator. Remove spent flowers from lower half of stem every few days. Expect a vase life of 7 days.
