Nigella papillosa (syn. N. Hispanica)
EXCLUSIVE - This hard-to-find nigella has multifaceted 2-inch blossoms with pure white petals and deeply contrasting, striking black centers. These enticing flowers float above ferny green foliage and make good cut flowers for indoor bouquets. When the plentiful white blossoms fade, they are followed by very decorative spidery seedpods that are simple to air dry for handsome everlasting dried flower arrangements. Reliable Nigella is carefree and easy to grow in all climates.

EASIEST TO PLANT DIRECTLY INTHE GARDEN

Sow seeds directly into a finely textured, well-drained garden bed as early in spring as the ground can be worked. Space seeds 2 inches apart, in rows 6 inches apart. Cover seed very lightly, about 1/4 inch deep. Or broadcast seeds evenly over the seed bed and cover very lightly. Keep evenly moist while awaiting germination. Thin seedlings to stand 6 inches apart so plants have room to grow and mature. In mild winter climates, Nigella can be sown in early spring and also be sown again in cool fall weather to overwinter for spring bloom.

 

GROWING NOTES

Make several successive sowings from early spring through early summer and you'll have these carefree specialty flowers blooming all season long. As flowers fade, cut stems of the decorative seedpods. Hang carefully upside down in bundles out of the direct sun to easily dry for everlasting arrangements. Let some seedpods mature and stay on the plants to spill seed and these graceful flowers will come up year after year.
