Nigella Damascena.

This pretty little flower is one of our favourites. Despite its delicate appearance, it has a surprisingly long vase life. The flowers of Nigella are surrounded by a series of bracts. These are supported by a thread-like leaf structure, known as a ruff. This gives the appearance of the flowers being surrounded by a mist, hence the romantic name.
