Phacelia divaricata

Truly delicious 1-1.25” painterly white-centered lavender blooms adorn this fast-to-bloom California native in Spring. Native to much of the Bay Area and scattered locales in western parts of the state “Trailing Phacelia” forms a charming 10” tall and 12-16”-across patch of pretty, rounded, almost quilted foliage topped with lots of these sky-facing flowers. We grew ours in both well-drained gardens and containers (3+ gal) and both performed beautifully here. Bee magnet! Self-sows. Tolerates serpentine. Deer resistant.
