Description

This one is a lovely semi-double sky blue. A classic.

Nigellas are the classic cottage garden annual and make fabulous cut flowers and filler foliage for any vase. They dry brilliantly too.

Care Tips

Keep picking but leave a few flowers to form seed pods for mixing with later flowers.
