Nigella damascena

EXCLUSIVE - Rose Nigella, also called Love in a Mist, has dainty multifaceted blossoms that open pastel pink, then deepen to an enchanting deep rose. The delicate flowers make charming petite bouquets. Once petals drop, blossoms are transformed into little fairy lanterns and the mature striped seed pods are among the prettiest of dried everlastings. This effortless and easy to grow annual is the very essence of a classic English cottage garden, yet it is adaptable to all climates.

EASIEST TO PLANT DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN

Sow seeds directly into a finely textured, well-drained garden bed as early in spring as the ground can be worked. In mild climates, sow in cool fall weather for spring bloom. Space seeds 2 to 3 inches apart in rows 6 inches apart and cover 1/4 inch deep. Or broadcast thinly in a garden bed and cover 1/4 inch deep. Weed young seedlings carefully and thin before they get too crowded. Thin or transplant seedlings 4 to 5 inches apart.

GROWING NOTES

Make several successive sowings from early spring through early summer and these carefree old-fashioned flowers will be in bloom all season long. Their delicate blossoms make sweet little bouquets. As flowers fade, cut the decorative seed pods before they mature and split. Hang upside down in bundles out of direct sun to dry for winter bouquets and arrangements. Let some seedpods mature on the plants to spill seed and these graceful flowers will come up year after year.
