Love-in-a-mist (Nigella) is a pretty and easy to grow hardy annual flower that originates from the Mediterranean and North Africa. It grows quickly and easily from seed. Love-in-a-mist flowers are borne in summer on slender, upright stems clothed in feathery green leaves, and are followed by decorative, large, inflated seed pods. Love-in-a-mist is often called a ‘sow and forget’ annual as the seeds can be sown direct in the soil and germinate reliably. Love in a mist makes an excellent and long-lasting cut flower, and the seed heads can also be dried and used in flower arrangements.
