Tobacco has been used and cultivated in America for a very long time, 10,000 years by some accounts. High nicotine content varieties of Nicotiana tabacum and Nicotiana rustica were prized by many tribes.

The flowers of the original flowering tobacco (Nicotiana alata) are very fragrant and open at night. During the day, the night flowering varieties might look weedy. Some more recent varieties open all day, but are not always so fragrant. If the fragrance is your main attraction, your better bet is with the white, night-flowering varieties. The colored versions come in pink, purple or red.

Regular water, well drained soil, with good organic matter content.

Propagation: Seeds.

Nigella is an annual flowering plant with finely divided, linear leaves. The flowers are delicate, and usually colored pale blue and white, with 5-10 petals. The fruit is a large and inflated capsule composed of 3-7 united follicles, each containing numerous seeds. The seeds of N. sativa, known as Black Cumin, onion seed or just nigella are used both as a condiment in bread and cakes and various confections and like pepper or combined with pepper such as cayenne in sauces. According to an Arab Proverb it is said that, 'in the black seed is the medicine for every disease except death.'

Nigella damascena has been grown in English cottage gardens since Elizabethan times, commonly called Love-in-a-mist.
