Phacelia Flower (Blue Tansy)


This was a gift from my friend Carole Dansereau and André Forte who are ecological gardeners.  They offer activities in the local elementary school in Notre-Dame de Stanbridge.  A beautiful annual flower that is used as a green manure as well as a pollinator plant.  This plant flowers all season long so it is a great source of nectar for the bees.  The plant originally comes from the deserts of the Southwest US / Northern Mexico / Turtle Island.
