'Love-in-a-Mist' flowers. (Nigella damascena)


In Stock

Blue, pink and white flowers on frilly plants.
Nigella damascena

'Love-in-a-Mist' plants are branched, eighteen to twenty four inches tall with leaves that are finely divided and thread-like. The flowers are blue, pink and white, borne at the ends of stems.

Native to the Mediterranean and western Asia. Plants prefer full sun to partial shade with moderate soils. Blooms quickly, but not tolerant of summer heat. Best direct sown in early spring as it does not transplant well due to taproot. This annual readily reseeds itself. The papery, horned seed capsules are often used in dried floral arrangements. Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 50 seeds.
These little blossoms are stunning, and so easy to grow. I have posted many photos of the Faery-like blossoms on FB, and followers are completely fascinated with them. If allowed to go to seed where they are planted, they will come back year after year, but I am buying more seed to share with family and friends.
