Mediterranean native. Old fashioned favorite 1 to 1 1/ 2 ft. high, 10 in. wide. All leaves, even those that form under collar beneath each flower, are finely cut into threadlike divisions. Blue, white, or rose-colored blooms, 1 1/2 in. across, are borne singly at branch ends in spring. Curious papery-textured, horned seed capsules lend an airy effect to bouquets and mixed borders, look very decorative in dried arrangements. Love-in-a-mist comes into bloom quickly in spring, dries up in summer heat. Start from seed in spring, as soon as ground is workable and frost danger is past; can be sown in fall in mild-winter areas. Sow seed where plants are to grow, since long taproot makes transplanting unsatisfactory. Self sows freely.
