Nicotiana edwardsonii Christie and D.W. Hall (Christie and Hall 1979) obtained by crossing N. clevelandii A. Gray with N. glutinosa L. is vigorous, fertile, and hypersensitive to tobacco mosaic virus (TMV). It possesses wide susceptibility to plant viruses like its N. clevelandii parent but has the vigor and size of its N. glutinosa parent.
