Phacelia Seeds have long been used as an agricultural cover crop, or "bee crop,". Its nectar-rich flowers are intensely attractive to bees. The flowers open over an extended period, attract hoverflies and other beneficial insects that prey on aphids and similar pests. This furry-leafed plant is a relative of borage in the family. We highly recommend you make space for a few Pacelia seeds in your garden this season (Borainaceae).
