Description

(Desert Tobacco, Wild Tobacco, Winpuri, Coyote Tobacco, Pi'va) Family: Nightshade (Solanaceae) Perennial desert plant of the American SW, usually found at low to mid elevations among rocks, under pines and in dry washes. Growing 1-3 feet tall and producing 1 to 1.5 inch long, tubular, greenish-white flowers in terminal clusters, it is a wonderful plant from a magical landscape. The leaves are sticky, covered with glandular hairs, loaded with nicotine and anabasine, and may attain a good size, sometimes as long as six inches. The Papago, Cahuilla, Mojave, Yuma, Cocopa and Maricopa tribes considered this a sacred plant and used it in ritual, shamanisticaly, as a medicinal herb and, often wrapped in the inner husk of corn, as a cigarette, for their smoking pleasure. Please respect this sacred plant. Sow in spring. Press tiny seeds into surface of potting soil and keep evenly moist until germination. 100 seeds/pkt., open pollinated -
