There is a certain softness and a hint of romance to this subtle combination I feel. With any other flower these almost cobalt blue Nigella can be retina burningly bright, but here, combined with Digitalis trojana there’s just enough undertone of grey to calm and soothe.
I’ve been growing this particular Nigella for nearly 15 years, the foxglove however is a more recent introduction having purchased the seed at RHS Chelsea Flower Show a couple of years ago. It’s a combination likely to be repeated next year if I let the Nigella self seed, actually I always let the Nigella self seed so…..

I adore that cobolt blue Nigella. How/where did you get such a wonderful variety? Want!
So sorry only just seen your comment. It is seed saved from a plant my nephew grew at nursery (he’s a strapping 24 yr old now) I never did know the variety sadly.
