Amelia's Phacelias

Click on flower pictures for a larger view


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.
