Like her more common blue/white sister, this cottage garden annual, in shades soft pinks and occasional white, is a must! Everything about it is pretty, from the buds, through flowers to seed pods. The finely cut, bright-green foliage is bedecked with flowers throughout the summer, which develop into seedpods, often tinged red and like spurred balloons. These are a lovely addition to dried flower arrangements.

NOTE: Seed count is low this year, for the simple reason that I was unable to collect many!

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Best direct sown outside in autumn or spring, alternatively under glass in Spring at 70F, preferably in modules, as Nigella does not, in my experience, like disturbance.
