Description

The most spectacular of the nigella family, with deep purple-blue petals and magnificent crimson crown seedpods. One of my top favourite plants.

Nigellas are the classic cottage garden annual which makes 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.
