Nigella damascena  Love-in-a-Mist



Nigella is a pretty, soft, garden flower.

I like using nigella to create a cottage-style arrangement.

With their ferny stems and laterals, Nigella coordinates well with other airy garden flowers such as Queen Ann’s lace…

Sometimes nigella reminds me of a ballerina in a tutu doing a pirouette.

Try growing nigella in your own cutting garden.  They self-seed, are easy to maintain, and won’t take over your garden.
