Nicotiana alata (N. affinis)-Flowering Tobacco. These were victims of the heavy June rains in Fargo. The saturated soil caused a loss of vigor and then the potato beetles moved in. 'Avalon Bright Pink', an All-America Selections winner for 2001, was unable to survive but will be grown again in 2001. The others that survived never regained vigor and were still poor by September.
