Brilliant blue flowers and decorative seed pods for fresh and dried bouquets. Fluffy 1 3/4–2", star-shaped blooms on stiff, 12–28" stems. Uniform, vigorous plants. Accented by attractive, ferny foliage. Whimsical purple and green, balloon-shaped seed pods dry readily/easily. Flowers attract and feed bees as well as other beneficial insects. 500 mg ~ 200 seeds.

Nigella is sensitive to transplant shock so carefully set in the garden.

Growing didn't go to plan but it's growing

my nigella seeds took a long time to sprout, but once they did they have been incredibly reliable. I have had a hard time this season because frost came early, but the nigellas continue to grow, even inside. Really love them!

Thank you for your review, Peyton! We're so glad to hear that you've had success with our Love-In-A Mist nigella seeds and that they've been able to withstand the early frost. Nigella seeds can take up to 2 weeks to germinate with the optimum soil temperature for seed germination around 60-75°F. Thank you for choosing our product and we hope you'll continue to enjoy them in the future.

When I read on line it read Nigella were Perennials. Then when I received the seed the directions To start growing them inside and then plant them after the frost. This tells me they are not perennials they are annuals? So I guess I can only enjoy one season of them?

Hi Laurel, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the product. Love-in-a-Mist plants are annuals--they will grow for one season and then die off. Our seed packets and website listing both indicate that this is an annual. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
