    Again I can only speak to my experience with N. sylvestris, but I find that it self seeds vigorously. I find it popping up all over. But being grown outside those fragrant flowers do their job of attracting pollinators very well.

    Well if they don't flower they certainly won't set seed.......

    I haven't noticed seeds, yet. The plant looks like Nicotiana sylvestris. Also, I finally noticed I misspelled Nicotiana in earlier posts.

    I watched an interesting documentary about plant defenses. There is a Bush called Acai I think that distributes pheromones when animals feed on it that triggers itself and all plants like it within a wide radius to secret a bitter poison to repel the intruding animals. Nicotine did something similar if I recall.

    Kronos, I think it was Acacia in Africa. As animals (springbok?) browsed the plants the plants released phenols (maybe?) to alert the other plants in the area. Also, the plants increased levels of toxins in their leaves as the herbivore ate them. The documentary showed a herbivore drop dead from eating plants in the same area for too long.
