Nicotiana glauca is a species of wild tobacco known by the common names tree tobacco and incorrectly also Mustard tree. Its leaves are attached to the stalk by petioles (many other Nicotiana species have sessile leaves), and its leaves and stems are neither nor sticky like Nicotiana tabacum. It grows to heights of more than two meters.
Tree tobacco is native to South America but it is now widespread as an introduced species on other continents, and it is a common roadside weed in the southwestern United States.
The plant is used for a variety of medicinal purposes and smoked by Native American groups. It is being investigated for use as a biofuel.
