About Nigella 'Persian Jewels'
Love-in-a-mist (Nigella) is a pretty and easy-to-grow hardy annual flower that was first from the Mediterranean and North Africa. Its a quick grower and an easy one from seed. Love-in-a-mist blooms in the summer on dainty upright stems clothed in feathery green leaves, and produce decorative seed pods which look great dried. Love-in-a-mist is often called a ‘sow and forget’ annual as the seeds can be sown directly 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.
In The Records
Nigella has been grown in British and European gardens since 1548, but has been known since Biblical times when it is called ‘Bitter Fitch’. It was even found in the tomb of Tutankhamun implying it had an important role in ancient Egyptian practices.
