Purple Phacelia, Fernleaf Phacelia

Phacelia bipinnatifida

Filtered spring sun to light shade, medium moisture level, fertile soil, acidic pH.  8-24” tall, blooms in spring, lavender blue flowers, self-sows freely.

Germination Code:  M.  Surface sow seed, barely covering with soil.

Native Region:  Middle and East Tennessee

Lovely woodland wildflower that is a biennial.  Flowers make a beautiful display in April.  Begins flowering at the bottom of the stalk and progresses upward.  Needs lots of room in a naturalistic woodland setting so plants can move around as older plants die and new seedlings come up.  Attracts bees.
