HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, pressing into the surface of the soil since this seed needs light to germinate. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination. Because the best temperature for germination is 50-55 degrees F, starting the plants indoors is possible but not recommended.

Growing: Water the seedlings until they become established; mature plants tolerate drought well, but flourish with occasional watering in especially dry weather. This plant grows well in rocky or sandy soil, and makes an excellent choice for rock gardens, borders, and containers. Plant in drifts for the most stunning display. This plant also attracts butterflies and bees.

Harvesting: For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Strip the foliage that will fall below the water level, and place in water immediately.

Seed Saving: After the plant begins to turn brown, its pods will gradually open and release their seeds. Gather the seeds as soon as the pods open; watch them carefully to prevent loss, since the seeds can easily be blown away by the wind. Store the seeds in a cool, dry place.

Looking forward to growing these.

This order arrived promptly, and I like the packaging. Will be planting in late fall. I have grown this species before in my desert garden, and I love the intense blue color. They are classified as an annual, and I had hoped I would be able to get them to reseed, but only a few did. I appreciate the availability of seeds that I can plant.

California Bluebells

Everwilde sent these seeds very promptly and they germinated just three days after I planted them. I've grown these California Bluebells before, and the intense blue color is just phenomenal!

Very tough and cold tolerant

Grew this for the first time this year and am very pleased. It survived a late frost that nearly took out some of the other plants. Didn't get quite as tall as hoped, but I'll definitely grow this again.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

This wildflower grows its intense blue bells in the wild deserts of California and Arizona. This tough little annual native now also colors gardens across the country, planted en masse, in rock gardens, or in even in containers. Bees are drawn to the wildflower as a source of nectar early in the growing season.
This native wildflower occurs naturally in the deserts of California and Arizona. Desert gardeners appreciate this plant for its hardiness and stunning blooms. The genus name "Phacelia" comes from the Greek word for "cluster," referring to the plant's growth habit. The species name "campanularia" refers to the plant's resemblance to the "campanulaceae" or bellflower plant family.
