Gardeners' Notes:

Positive ineedacupoftea On Mar 24, 2006, ineedacupoftea from Denver, CO wrote:

A quality, true-red flowered tobacco. Unfortunately, any fragrance went out with the whiteness genes. This is a tougher cultivar than most and abject conditions will show this one to be the last to die. Compact and floriferous. Thrip damage is quite obvious as whitish blotches and needs preventative measures.
