I'm wondering how fragrant they are and how tall they really get?

In the past I have been overrun by the taller ones, flopping and falling all over the place in our heavy rain and winds. It has taken me 2 years to get rid of them. I can't believe I want them again! But I really miss that evening fragrance. I'd really like to find some that are shorter and easier to manage but still fragrant and bring the hummingbirds up close to my porch.

Karen,

I see this is an older posting - I grew nicotiana perfume purple last ear and just loved it. The plant doesn't get too tall. I believe mine was about 18-24". ihad n problems with flopping over. I will see if I can find some pictures for you.

They were very fragrant and the colors were deep rich colors - I still have to find those pictures for you....

Thanks, it's sounds like the perfume series might be just what I need.

I received mine in a a trade, so they are a plant that comes true from seed. They smell wonderful - especially in the evening.
