Phacelia sericea (Silky Phacelia, Purplefringe, Alpine Phacelia)

* Seeds per package - 50
* Bloom Time - May
* Bloom Color - Two-toned purple fascicles. The long, dark-purple filaments have an amusing, bright-yellow anther at the tips.
* Size - 12" x 12-16"
* Culture - This alpine dweller appreciates a sunny, well-drained but cooler exposure.
* Characteristics - Native to the western United States and Canada. Native bees appreciate the flowers.
* Special Features - From a petite rosette of deeply cut foliage, the bloom spikes arise.
* Germination - Surface sow on moist potting mix. Winter sow or give four to six weeks of cold, moist stratification in the refrigerator. If using the refrigerator, check the container (or baggie, if that's the method you're using) every week or so. (My original seeds were germinating in the fridge at week five.)
