Description
 
Nicotiana rustica

Also known as 'Indian Tobacco', in small doses this medicinal herb acts as a stimulant, especially on the respiratory system. In larger doses it acts as a nerve depressant, and is useful for asthma and whooping cough. Use with caution as excessive doses can cause severe depression.

A profuse bloomer, Lobelia makes a beautiful ground cover and grows easily in sunny, moist areas. Found naturally along creek beds and marshlands, Lobelia is often mistaken for a weed. Its beautiful compact blooms do not need to be removed once they begin to die, as more to continue to grow. With its low key maintenance schedule and continuous pretty blooms, Lobelia is one of our favorite herbs to grow!

Cool plant September 20, 2016
Reviewer: Rhonda from South Bend, IN United States  
The plant arrived in good shape. I gave it a good watering amd it was ready to plant. It appears to be a fast grower and is doing well.
