Phacelia Increases Diversity of Beneficial Insects
Phacelia is a quick-growing, flowering plant that can reach heights of up to 4 feet. It is adapted to a wide range of soils ranging in pH from 6.4 to 8.6. Phacelia exhibits excellent cold tolerance and will continue to grow in the fall, surviving temperatures of 20 degrees Fahrenheit or slightly lower. Phacelia is an excellent source of high quality nectar and pollen and as a result is excellent at increasing the population and diversity of beneficial insects.
