Cultivated Dwarf Flowering Tobacco seen in a garden in Muscat last month (March’17)

Pl. check with images at Nicotiana alata

Thanks …


Plz help in identifying this Nicotiana species.
Cultivated in Kashmir University Botanic garden.

It may be Nicotiana plumbaginifolia.

Nicotiana plumbaginifolia has corolla lobes which are narrowly ovate with acute tips. I have never seen it in Kashmir, and is moreover wild weed not worth cultivation.
Here corolla lobes are rounded, unequal in size, upper smaller, lower longer…….it is cultivated species N. suaveolens.
