Phacelia divaricata (Divaricate Phacelia) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: There isn’t much information available about growing this species, unfortunately. I can only report that I sowed the seeds on February 1, 2020, in relatively cool conditions (around 65°F during the day and 55°F at night), and the first seedling appeared by February 10. I can’t tell you yet whether the cooler temperatures or the day/night difference is necessary. I plan to do some experiments in 2021 to learn more. But for now, that might be enough information for you to go on.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

You’ll rarely see seeds of this pretty little annual for sale–under its correct name, at least. I bought seeds that were supposed to be Phacelia purshii and ended up with this species instead, ID’d with the help of a knowledgeable gardening friend. Divaricate phacelia, also known as trailing phacelia, produces low clumps (around 8 to 10 inches tall) of lax stems clad in oval-ish leaves and single, open, lavender blue-and-white flowers. It flowered here in late spring to early summer–not an exceptionally long bloom period, but it was charming enough to be worth growing for early color. Native to parts of California. Full sun. Annual.

Harvested in July 2020. At least 15 seeds.
