Description

The Lacy Phacelia (Phacelia tanacetifolia), also known as Scorpionweed and Purple Tansy, is a fast-growing, drought-tolerant, cold-hardy annual in the borage family. Produces coiled, whiskered lavender-colored blossoms that look similar to a scorpion tail, fiddlehead, or thistle. Grows 2'-3' tall on thin, hairy stems with lacy foliage. Plant a few or a field, or add a bit of wildness to a cut arrangement. An especially great companion plant in the vegetable garden as it’s quick to bloom, attracts bees and hoverflies, and stores nitrogen which also makes it a good cover crop.

  • Life cycle: Annual
  • Bloom season: Summer
  • Attracts: Hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, beneficial insects, and other pollinators
  • Flower meaning: Determination, endurance, resistance, strength
