Love-in-a-Mist (Nigella damascena)

The fine hairlike bracts around the flowers give these plants their common name, \"Love-in-a-mist.\" The flowers last for up to eight weeks in the summer and, if left, will then form balloonlike, striped seedpods. This plant requires full sun and germinates in two to three weeks. Height is typically 12 inches (30 cm).
