Info

This neat-o Nigella looks like a flying saucer from outer space, but it's actually from Syria. The single flowers open yellow-green on 24" stems. The ovary, which will become a bizarre pod, is a central structure forming outward curving blades rather like a pinwheel. In time, they will open out as wide as 2 - 3", making a fine addition to dried arrangements. Thrives in poor soil. Reseeds!
