Nigella damascena

Heirloom Love in a Mist

EXCLUSIVE – This special colored Nigella, (also called Love in a Mist), has dainty, multifaceted blossoms that open white with sky-blue edges, then deepen to a rich indigo-violet hue. These old-fashioned, dainty flowers hover above ferny green foliage. When blossoms fade, their papery seedpods resemble little striped fairy lanterns – among the prettiest of dried everlastings. Both the enchanting flowers and their decorative seedpods make lovely bouquets. Nigella is easy and reliable to grow in all climates.

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 garden bed and cover 1/4 inch deep. Weed young seedlings carefully and thin to stand 6 inches apart so plants have room to grow and mature.


Make several successive sowings from early spring through early summer and these carefree old-fashioned flowers will bloom all season long. Their delicate blossoms make sweet little bouquets. As flowers fade, cut the decorative seedpods before they mature and split. Hang upside down in bundles out of the 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.
