Old Fashioned Nicotiana(Nicotiana alata) This plant is in the same family as eggplant, tomatoes and peppers. Also known as Flowering Tobacco, this plant's flowers become waxing luminous when dusk begins to fall. Flowing cascades of star shaped blooms (formerly called star flower) in shades of white, pink, fuchsia, maroon, and purple are extremely fragrant in an attempt to attract night-flying pollinators.
