Description

Love in a Mist Transformer is a curious little flower indeed. Citron and chartreuse color tones with burgundy accents, looking like an octopus stuck head first into an upside down lily, with stamen splashing everywhere, what's not to like?

  • CLIMATE Heat loving
  • WATER Drought tolerant
  • INDOOR+POTSGrows well in containers outside

How to Plant

Stick in the dirt 1/8" deep, 2" apart. Water gently and regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 weeks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 12".

Where to Plant

Full or part sun.

When to Plant

Early spring, or late fall if winters are mild. Sow directly into garden. Plant every 4 weeks for longer bloom season.

When to Expect Blooms

For about 4 weeks in summer.

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers to encourage more blooms.

Extra Credit

Nigella leaves and petals are edible with a watercress flavor, and the seeds are widely used as a spice.
