Around our home grows a bush of delicate looking flowers of all shapes and styles called "Love-In-Mist." In the same cluster of blossomed, some have a single layer of petals and others have double and triple layers with rounded tips or pointed tips. One seed can yield a big bush of these varied shapes and colors. They look misty because of the soft array of green leaves that grow around them, along with the fluffiness of the flower, as if it had some cotton in it. Love-In-Mist can be seen in old paintings of 19th century ladies in the garden.
Made by Royal London of England in 1948
Love-In-Mist has delicate fern like leaves with wispy soft tendrils.
Here you can see the rounded corners on the square shape. We have used these cups frequently and when carefully hand washed, they stay looking nice and new.
Please check back on this post or for a new post, for a video about choosing teacups.
Thank you all for your loveliness!
Love-A-Mist also comes in other colors but I have not seen them. When you plant this, it will bloom season after season and produce many seeds to have a seed-exchange with friends.
