Nigella orientalis Transformer, also known as The Jester's Hat, is a distinctive novelty cut flower variety that is boasting in intriguing visual and textural interest. This unique variety, from the fennel family, features pale lime-yellow petal flowers that surround a "fountain" of green fluted seedpods.
