Love-in-a-Mist African Bride
Nigella papillosa

While this plant looks quite fragile, it’s one of the hardiest early bloomers in the garden. Its brilliant ferny leaves and lacy, star-shaped flowers are framed by a delicate halo of fringed foliage. When left on the plant, the flowers form dramatic green and brown seed pods which add a unique textural element to any bouquet.

Plant type: annual
Height: 18-28”
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 65-85 days
Plant spacing: 9-12”

How to Grow:
Plants dislike being transplanted, so sow seeds directly in the garden in the fall or early spring.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
Harvest flowers when fully open. Vase life is generally 1 week, especially if you add preservative to the water. Use the pods fresh or dried in bouquets; dried ones last almost indefinitely. To dry, simply hang upside down in a warm, dry place out of bright light for 2 weeks.
