________________________________________________________________

Nigella is a genus of attractive hardy annual herbs of the Buttercup Family, with blue, yellow, or white flowers, and very finely cut foliage, which probably suggests the common name, Fennel-flower. It is also called Love-in-the-mist and will be forever linked to Gertrude Jekyll.

Nigella belongs to the Ranunculaceae Family (Buttercup or Crowfoot Family).
