Love-in-a-Mist (Nigella Damascena Jewels Mix) - Grow this unusual but very attractive little gem from Nigella seeds. This Love In A Mist seed mix produces blooms in shades of red, white and blue which reach up to 2 1/2 inches across. Once the flowers are done, equally attractive seed pods form once the blooms dry. The Love-In-A-Mist plant foliage is lacy and fern-like giving the plant an airy effect. The flower is great to use as a cut flower, and the seed pods are great to use in arrangements once dried. To dry Nigella flowers and seed pods: Cut the stem and hang upside down in cool location.

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