Love -in-a-Mist is a pretty annual flower with the Latin name of Nigella damascena. It will grow to about 8 in (20 cm) high in any well-drained soil, in sun or semi-shade. Its striking flowerhead and frondy leaves make it a rather unusual addition to the garden or patio! The flowers make good dried displays, as do the seedheads, which are almost as interesting as the flowers. The plant has blue flowers from June to August. Its Latin name derives from it coming to this country from Damascus, round about 1570. Also known as Fennel Flower, Devil-in-a-Bush and Love Entangled. It is a good plant for bees too.
The plant was dedicated to St Catherine because it resembles the wheel and spokes which were used to torture her.
How to sow Love-in-a-Mist seeds
