These spectacular little flowers grew wild in my land early this Spring. Now I am collecting their seeds - very few, perhaps not enough even for one trade dose. The book (G. Sfikas, Wild Flowers Of Crete) says there are three nigellas in Crete:
1. N. cretica
2. N. doerflieri
3. N. Damascena
none has white flowers - and what do I have?? the albino multicoloris??

HELP!!
Dimitri

PS You will have your name mentioned when I receive the Nobel for this discovery!!
