This just bloomed. Anyone have any idea what it is? I recall sowing blue mistflower in that spot, but this is definitely white, not blue!! Whistling

I agree. They come in several colors.... I have some in the garden just putting out buds but none is open yet.

Here's a patch of Nigella coming into bud -- not a great picture; I'll try for better tomorrow, but this shows foliage at least and I think if you peer at it you might detect what the bud looks like. Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!
