Description

Love-in-a-Mist has been grown in gardens since the late 16th century.  This self-seeding, cool-season annual produces handsome blue, white, or pink flowers amidst the delicate, lacy foliage.  The unusual balloon-shaped, striped seed capsules add interest to the garden and dried arrangements.  Thomas Jefferson sowed a related species, Nutmeg Flower (Nigella sativa), in an oval flower bed at Monticello on April 18, 1810.

Direct sow seeds in early spring once soil temperatures have reached 60 degrees F.  Approximately 35-40 seeds per packet.
