The Lacy Phacelia flower spike is light blue-violet and has bees busy all day long, and the foliage is fern-like and lacy in appearance. Give it a sunny location in the garden and water from the roots occasionally. Sprinklers can make the stems flop. Phacelia Tanacetifolia cover crop use is becoming more and more popular and is used similarly to buckwheat as a winter cover.
Sow Lacy Phacelia seeds in the early spring when there is still a chance of frost. Press the wild flower seeds into the soil, cover 1/8, and keep seeds moist continuously. Thin seedlings to 12 inches apart. Lacy Phacelia will drop its own wildflower seeds. If seedlings and spreading is not desired, deadhead spent blooms.
