Height 12 to 24 Inches

An heirloom grown since the 1600’s, the multi-petaled flowers come in colors of blue, mauve, pale pink, rose, purple and white. Flowers are nestled in a ring of fine, lacy foliage which gives rise to the other common name for Nigella, ‘fennel flower’. Love In A Mist also makes an excellent, unique cut flower.

SOWING…Plant seeds outdoors directly in the garden in a sunny location as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. Plants do not transplant well. Scatter seed thinly and cover with ⅛ inch of fine soil, well pressed down.

THINNING…Thin to 6 inches apart for the best blooms.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 10 to 14 days depending on soil and weather conditions.

REMARKS…The balloon-shaped seed pods with green and purple stripes are highly decorative in dried arrangements. Plants will self-seed if pods are left on.
