Phacelia minor

Getting a new plant in the garden is always, for me, like getting a new toy on Christmas morning! Last year’s big Spring thrill was this bee magnet extraordinaire & CA native “Wild Canterbury Bells.” Welcoming the Spring atop open, branching stems, the 1” bells are a delicious, almost velvety rich purple. How handsome is the low, dense clump of blue-green, scalloped leaves? I was delighted that it bloomed simultaneously with Ixia ‘Buttercup’ & think I’ll try it with our two Layias. 18” tall & 15” across. Best in well-drained soil, terrific in a container! Self-sows! Deer resistant.
