Nicotiana flowers have 5 petals, like a star. Plant in photo has 4.
This is Matthiola incana the single flowered variety. Also called "stock". Often confused with Nicotiana.

oops...edited for spelling

@Calsurf73@ Thank You! very much

Does it need shade, or it can survive on the sun side of the balcony ?

Here they need full sun, but in Israel morning sun and part shade in the afternoon would "probably" be best. ( I'm basing this on my total lack of knowledge of Israel's climate.)
Have you ever seen the double flowered varieties ? They're actually much nicer and are a staple of the cut flower trade. They're very easy to grow from seed.

thanks
says maximum zone 9b, here is zone 10-11, I be leave that even in 100% shade it will not survive the 95-100 F hot summer here, but we will see (it was slowly growing for now all winter with average temperature about 65-75 F)
