Purple Perfume Nicotiana

Certified Organic

Nicotiana alata

A deep purple, star-shaped flower

Scent is one way plants open our "doors of perception," reminding us of just how nuanced, multi-layered, and even psychedelic a perfume can be. Purple Perfume Nicotiana heightens our senses with its richly-hued blossoms, velvety foliage, and mind-bending scent. Perfect for containers on the porch or planted along borders, the slender, trumpet- like flowers open into a constellation of deep purple stars from late afternoon to morning. Site it where you can enjoy regular hits of its soft, powdery aroma.

Carrie Lederer's work consists of intricate, pattern-based compositions to portray ideas about land and our natural world. Using acrylic and gouache on paper, she places the fragrant flowers of this Nicotiana between micro and macro perspectives to convey the heady scents and delicate forms that exist in the mysterious realms that surround us.
