Nigella damascena | Love-in-mist ‘Miss Jekyll Blue’
Love-in-a-Mist, also known as Black Cumin, Black Caraway, Love-in-a-Puzzle, Devil-in-a-Bush, Hair of Venus, and Raggedy Lady, has been grown in gardens since the late 16th century. This variety, ‘Miss Jekyll Blue’, is named after Gertrude Jekyll, the famous English garden designer.
This is a cool-season annual that produces beautiful blue/sky-blue flowers amidst fine-textured, lacy foliage. The unusual maroon-striped, balloon-shaped seed capsules add interest to front of a border garden and to dried flower arrangements.
Direct sow seeds in early spring once soil temperatures have warmed up. Self-sows moderately each after.
