Product Description

California Bluebell Seeds - Phacelia campanularia Seed

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.

    How to Plant California Bluebell

    When to Plant California Bluebell Seeds

    Direct sow outdoors 2-4 weeks before the final frost date of Spring, or start indoors 6-8 weeks before the final frost. In cooler climates, California Bluebells can also be sown in the Fall, after the first killing frost.

    Where to Plant California Bluebell Seeds

    California Bluebells thrive when planted in Full Sun conditions. They do best in soil that is somewhat dry, sandy soil, but they can tolerate other soil conditions as long as it's well-draining.

    How to Plant California Bluebell Seeds

    Sow seeds onto the surface of the soil and firmly compress, but do not cover the seeds. California Bluebell seeds require exposure to sunlight in order to germinate. Seedlings will emerge in approximately 5-10 days.

    How to Care for California Bluebell

    Once sprouts come up, thin to 1 every 6 inches. Once established, California Bluebells will tolerate drought, but will certainly benefit from occasional watering. As a tall grower, California Bluebells may need support from staking, especially in areas with high winds. After plants begin to turn brown, seed pods for the Bluebells will star opening. Collect seeds as soon as pods open, and store in a cool dry location with minimal sunlight exposure for planting in the next season.

Hypnotic Blue

I am mesmerized by the beauty of this humble flower. It is, in my humble opinion, the coveted "sapphire" of blue flowers. Photos do not do it justice. You must see it for real.
