I grow these unusually gorgeous flowers in my garden every year. They are delicate looking and make excellent "filler" plants around larger flowers...or as a mass planting. The foliage is airy, fern-like and "misty" looking. After the flowers are spent...even the seed pods are decorative !
You will receive : ½ Ounce , organic, whole black Nigella seeds in a sealed plastic bag...enough for a mass planting or to scatter around your flower beds.
Some facts about the seeds:
These Black Seeds are the same Black Seeds that are used in many Black Seed Oil Health supplements. Common names include: Nigella sativa, fennel flower, nutmeg flower, Roman coriander, blackseed or black caraway, kaljeera, kalonji, black cumin, Habbat Alabarakah ( Seed of Blessing ), and The Pharaoh's secret (because they were found in King Tuts tomb).
Description: Native to Africa and Asia, black cumin bears seeds that are dark, thin, and crescent-shaped when whole.
