'Perfume Deep Purple'
'Perfume Deep Purple' flowers are shaped like stars. The stars shine at night and this is
when 'Perfume Deep Purple' begins its performance. The unique quality is the strong
fragrance which scents the air in the evening. The fragrance is not wasted during the day
when many people are working. The nightly release of the perfume will entice gardeners to
relax and linger in their gardens. Consider 'Perfume Deep Purple' as natural aromatherapy.
The rich, lavish deep purple flower color is another unique trait, distinct from other
nicotianas. 'Perfume Deep Purple' is easily grown from seed, young green bedding plants or
flowering pot plants. Nicotiana, named for Jean Nicot, who introduced tobacco to the
French Court, needs a sunny location and is perfectly adaptable to container culture.
'Perfume Deep Purple' does not require pinching, pruning or deadheading to maintain a
crown of starry blooms all summer. Quite heat tolerant, plants need minimal maintenance.
Only water and fertile soil are needed for 'Perfume Deep Purple' to bloom profusely all
summer. Grow stars in your garden this summer - plant 'Perfume Deep Purple.'
