Nigella Rose

Love-in-a-Mist (Nigella Damascena Jewels Rose) - Grow this unusual but very attractive little gem from Nigella seeds. Rose Nigella has lovely blooms which reach up to 2 1/2 inches across. Once the blooms are done, equally attractive seed pods form once the blooms dry. The rose Love-In-A-Mist plant has lacy, fern-like foliage that gives the plant an airy feel. Nigella flowers are great for cutting, and they also preserve well. Nigella seed pods are very attractive in arrangements once they are dried. To dry the Nigella flower, cut the stem and hang upside down in cool location.

Sow Nigella seeds outdoors in early spring. The flower seed can be lightly covered with soil. Each Nigella plant has a short bloom season, so it is best to have successive plantings every three weeks to have blooms all season. Thin the Nigella seedlings to 6 inches between plants, and the plants should start blooming in three months. Deadheading will promote continued blooming of Nigella flowers, but will eliminate the attractive seed pods that form later. Love-in-a-Mist is a ready self-seeder if you leave the seed pods on. In mild climates, this rose Love-In-A-Mist plant will bloom continuously.
