Solanaceae. The flowers of this species are produced on many-branched stems. The flowers are tubular, white, borne in racemes held above the foliage. Flowers can be over 7 cm long with a face 2 cm wide. Their scent is strongest at night, to attract pollinating moths. Native to the Andes region in Argentina and Bolivia, in South America.



This plant is thought to be one of the parents of Nicotiana tabacum, the plant used in modern tobacco production.
