A yellow-green Nigella

Most of the nigellas we have are the usual blue "love in a mist" variety. A few have put up yellow/green flowers instead. I'm not sure if this is just a variety of N. damascena or if it is a separate species

I've never seen Nigella this colour. It's very attractive.

Thanks for your comment - I've corrected my stupid mistake. I blame lack of brain!

I know nothing about plants so I'd never heard of it. It's very pretty.

Jams you have so many different varieties in your garden that I am wondering how many hectares you have. Or are they all standing on top of each other?

Thanks everyone, jmb we don't have a big garden (30x3m). The not-wife knows how to pack in the plants!

I've taken photos of your flowers (and of Sean's garden), and I'm visiting our Toronto Botanical Gardens with my son, on Mother's Day, hoping to see and smell all the beautiful flowers you've posted. Thank you!
