Phacelia tanacetifolia

Feed the bees! This beautiful, lacy-leaved annual has stunning, cosmically ethereal purple flowers that unfurl like fiddlehead ferns, offering up a veritable smorgasbord of sustenance for bees of all types. Especially beloved by bumble bees. In addition to being a lovely annual flower, it's often recommended as a summer cover crop. However, in our experience, it can't stand alone as a weed suppressor, so it's best to combine it with other hot weather cover crops like buckwheat if that's your goal.

Seeds grown by Earthly Delights Farm in Boise, ID, Affinity Farm in Moscow, Idaho, and Thompson Creek Farm in Newman Lake, Washington.
