Exotic Nigella Love-In-A-Mist


Exotic Nigella Love-In-A-Mist

Nigella hispanica
Exotic’s golden-brown pods are similar to velvetleaf’s wonderful starry seed pods except with long fancy tendrils. Will add interest and volume to any dried arrangement. Unlike velvetleaf, this annual won’t be a nuisance in the field. Doubles as a cutflower with open form, striking maroon stamens and an arresting shade of deep blue, almost purple. Atop 16" stems, the blossoms hold longer in a bouquet than other kinds of Love-in-a-Mist. Likes full sun or light shade. Annual. ~900 seeds/g.
