‘Cramers’ Plum’ love-in-a-mist (Nigella damascena) is pretty in bloom, with white flowers on bushy, 12- to 18-inch-tall plants, but its most distinctive feature is its long-lasting, reddish plum seedpods. They make a perfect color echo for many plum- to purple-leaved perennials and shrubs. Pick the pods for fresh or dried arrangements, or let them mature fully on the plants and crumble them over your beds and borders; those seeds may germinate, grow, and flower in fall but are more likely to sprout the following spring. Full sun to light shade. Annual.
Collected in 2020. At least 20 seeds.
