Seeds--French wildflower

Average soils - Average soils--Blue phacelia

 
 
 
 
Bring the beauty of the French countryside into your own garden with easy-to-grow blue phacelia. This wildflower is in the borage family, with coiled clusters of fuzzy blue flowers that are highly attractive to butterflies, honeybees, and beneficial insects, and even are honey-scented. Blue phacelia makes an amazingly long-lasting cutflower, with the previously closed buds continuing to open for over a week. And if that's not enough, with its quick growth and tender lacy foliage, phacelia makes an excellent cover crop to enrich the soil. It is much used in France for that purpose.

I've searched for a year to find the right source of French native wildflower seeds to offer you. Here they are! Certified organically grown, these seeds are produced on a family flower farm in the Massif Central. One hundred percent of the process is artisanal, right down to the seed packets which are decorated with drawings of the content plants by the owner.
