At the suggestion of one of the greatest PSA students ever I planted a patch of Phacelia in the bee yard.
This variety, Phacelia tanacetifolia also known as Lacey Phacelia is a gorgeous plant that the bees go wild for.
The foliage is beautiful too and it was a joy to watch this plant grow. Now it is coming into bloom.
Many thanks for the great suggestion, Amelia! I call the patch "Amelia's Phacelias" and you have made a lot of bees very happy.
