Bee's Friend aka Phacelia (Certified Organic)
Phacelia tanacetifolia. Hands down winner of the "bee-attractor of the year" award, our patches of phacelia were non-stop loaded with every bee on the block, and was especially loved by the bumblebees. The lavendar-blue flowers and feathery leaves are eye-catching and easily form a dense, low maintenance stand. Wear long sleeves and gloves when harvesting seeds; it can be itchy. Very long bloom period - the flower heads unfurl like fiddleheads and bloom in sucession from one end of the stem to the other.
