This Native “Parry’s” Phacelia is ready to impress you with its dark purple, showy bell-shaped flowers. Similar to Phacelia minor, this easy to grow late spring-summer annual looks good in the border or grown solo in a container. The stems are sticky and covered with hairs like other members of the Boraginaceae family. This Phacelia stands 12”-18” tall and up to 2’ wide. Be sure to plant in full sun to part shade in a spot with good drainage. It would also appreciate being top dressed with compost when initially planted! Phacelia is loved by bees! Deer Resistant.
