Nicotiana alata flowers open at night, beginning at dusk. When open, flowers are fragrant.

It is a tall plant which routinely requires secure staking in my yard. It is also a favorite of hummingbirds.

I love this plant..It is holding up well in the high 90 to 100 degree temps. They do flop. The fragrance is heavenly.
