Description More Info Delivery

With gorgeous flowers, foliage and seedpods, this easy-to-grow annual has it all. Nigella papillosa 'African Bride' is a stunning variety of this quintessential cottage garden annual, bearing masses of pure white single flowers with contrasting deep plum-purple stamens. The exquisitely elegant flowers sit aloft a haze of airy, finely-cut foliage. They make excellent cut flowers and the foliage an excellent filler in bouquets – just be sure to leave some flowers on the plant to develop into handsome dark purple seedpods, which provide interest throughout autumn and are just as attractive and striking as the flowers! Try direct sowing love-in-a-mist in bold drifts to soften border edges. Height: 70cm (28in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

Culinary note: Love-in-a-mist seeds have a strong aroma and spicy taste, and can be used as a condiment or spice to flavour cakes, breads and curries.


1 Packet (500 Seeds) (KC9714)

Water love-in-a-mist regularly until plants are fully established. Faded Nigella flowers can be left in place for decorative seed pods. Alternatively deadhead spent Nigella blooms to prevent them from self seeding.
