Hi Idabean,
As long as they are not a hybrid(not sure if there are any hybrid nigella) and not grown near other nigella cultivars, they will come true. If they are grown near others, I would suspect that the plants would end up becoming all blue over time since that seems to be the dominate color of nigella.

RE: nigella true from seed

I'd be happy with all blue. All of the nigella six pack seedlings I've found are mixed purple, blue and white. I thought it would be fun to begin my first seed collecting and winter sowing by separating and sowing by color. In any case, it would be a good experiment.
