Wild Tobacco (Ngkwerlp) Story

Wild Tobacco or Pituri Story   
Ilkawerne country

This herb has soft leaves and creamy white, trumpet shaped flowers with two-valved seed capsules.  Occurring naturally in Central Australia, it is found plentiful in southern Utopia. The leaf of the plant is picked and chewed by the aboriginal people and can also be used for medicinal purposes. In the olden days, and in some areas today, the seeds would be collected and replanted by the aboriginal people.
