The inflorescences are Panicles bearing several yellow flowers. The Corolle greenish yellow has a tube 1.2 to 2 cm long, 2 to 3 times longer than the chalice.

Tabacum (Tabaco Blanco) to perform propitiatory rituals. In these same functions, the N. Paniculata (Tabaco Cimarron) is considered to be the most powerful1.
