What is Nigera Damascena

Birth flowers for Mar 8, Mar 31, Apr 21, May 29

Nigella damasquena (Scientific name: Nigella damascena) is an annual herb of the family Ranunculaceae, which is native to the southern European to Mediterranean coasts. In Japan, the term "nigella" usually means this species. What looks like a blue or white flower is not a flower, but a calyx, and the actual flower is degenerate. A bract that looks like a thin leaf covers a flower (in fact, a calyx). As it is persimmon, the flowering period is long and it can be enjoyed in the garden etc., and the fruit after flowering may be a dried flower. Because many black seeds are contained in the bulb-shaped fruit after flowering, it is called "Black Seed Grass". The seeds have vanilla incense.
In the same genus is the yellow flowering Nigella orientalis.
"Nigera sativa", which has been used in ancient Egypt since 3300 years, is a different species called "Black Cumin" and is used as a spice.
