Phacelia / Facelia for Bees

(1) Write a Review

Product Description

Annual plant both rustic and resistant. The plant is about 30cm tall and produces a purple/blue flower with numerous leaves and a large number of flower heads over a long period in the summer which attract bees. Phacelia honey is also excellent. Remember that Franchi don't use Neonicotinoids as they are banned in Italy but not in the same way in the UK so Franchi seeds are safe for our delicate British bees.

    Phacelia for bees

    I bought this on a friend's recommendation - the seeds sprouted quickly and are now (early June) covered with bumblebees, growing to around knee-height. A lovely addition to my flowerbeds, filling in odd corners.
