About California Bluebell Seeds

Phacelia campanularia

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed
Also known as Desert Bluebell

As its name suggests, this stunning wildflower is native to the Golden State, but it can also be quite easily propagated throughout the other 49 United States. We humbly consider this flower to be one of the most underrated of all the North American wildflowers and heartily recommend it to any "wild" gardener. California Bluebell—also called California Blue Bell or Bells—is widely adaptable, and will also typically grow well in difficult arid environments.
