Nectar-rich natives attract beneficial bugs and butterflies
why plant Phacelia seeds?
Phacelia is a drought-tolerant wildflower native to the western United States, making it a great choice for dry, fast-draining soils and full-sun sites. Very attractive to pollinators, this plant produces an abundance of nectar, keeping its blooms throughout the hottest of summers when other species are apt to fade and droop. Try the shorter California Bluebells wherever you’d like to see a pop of electric blue color, including part-shade areas. Plant Lacy Phacelia (also called Blue or Purple Tansy) near the veggie garden, as it attracts beneficial aphid-killing bugs. All the seed we offer at American Meadows is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free and guaranteed to grow!
