Nicotiana tabacum is a sticky, thick-leaved perennial that can reach up to six feet in height. Hardy to Zone 8, this is the preferred species of the tobacco industry. Its sweet-scented, highly ornamental flowers are white to pink and are pollinated by bees and butterflies. Tobacco juice may used as a pesticide. Despite its recreational popularity, tobacco was traditionally considered a medicine.
