Nigella hispanica 'Midnight'

Plant details

Midnight' is a handsome cultivar that produces velvety, dark purple flowers against feathery foliage, followed by very ornamental, dark purple, spider-like seed-pods. The flowers are invaluable for flower arranging, and the seed pods are just as eye-catching. Plants are easy to grow and look great among herbaceous perennials. Fully hardy, they prefer a sunny position in fertile, well-drained soil.
