Phacelia Seed - Coated
Back

Phacelia is a versatile plant that is used for bee forage, cover crop, erosion control, hay and forage.  Phacelia is a top choice for pollinators. This guide growing plant has ample amounts of feathering lavender-blue fragrant flowers that attract bees and other beneficial bugs. Phacelia also has a great root structure for breaking up clay-type soils and it absorbs excess nitrogen and calcium that are in your soil.

Product Information

  • Application or Use: Pasture, Livestock Grazing, Hay Production, Cover Crop, Erosion Control, Cattle Forage, Bee Forage
  • Germination Time: 21 - 28 days, under optimal conditions
  • Growing Locations: Cool Season & Transition Zone
  • Height: 2 - 3 feet
  • Sunlight Requirements: 8+ hours, full sun for best results
  • Advantages: Quick to grow and flower; used widely as pollinator attractant.
  • When to Plant: Recommended planting time is spring, summer and fall when night time temperatures are consistently 65+ degrees.

 

Product Detail

  • Attracts bees and other beneficial bugs
  • Used for bee forage, cover crop, erosion control and hay
  • Grows well in dry soil
  • Full sun
  • Cold and drought tolerant

 

Product Information

Phacelia is also being increasingly used in California – especially in vineyards. Phacelia is quick to grow and flower and grows well in dry soil. It does a good job of limiting nitrate leaching when planted in early fall. It winterkills at about 18°F. In cooler regions, it can be used as a between cash crops cover crop in the summer. Phacelia is listed as one of the top 20 honey-producing flowers for honeybees and is also highly attractive to bumblebees and syrphid (hover) flies. Phacelia’s habit of flowering abundantly and for a long period can increase beneficial insect numbers and diversity, because it provides high quality nectar and pollen.  It’s also useful as a cut flower with its unusual and attractive blooms, strong stems, and long vase life. Because Phacelia germinates well at cool temperatures and grows quickly, cut flowers can be available by mid-spring. 

Phacelia is a small seeded annual herb primarily used as a pollinator attractant. Due to the small seed size, it is coated using standard lime-based coating.

Phacelia tanacetifolia is in herbaceous, non-leguminous, flowering annual in the Hydrophyllaceae family. It’s native to the arid Southwest region of the United States and Mexico. Height ranges from 6 to 47 inches. The foliage appears ferny, and the flowers are in flat-topped clusters in shades of purple or occasionally white. Spring- and summer-planted Phacelia flowers approximately 6 to 8 weeks after germination. Flowering continues for 6 to 8 weeks. Phacelia is a long-day plant and requires a minimum of 13 hours of daylight to initiate flowering (roughly mid-April to early September in the mid-Atlantic).

Phacelia is comparable to buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) in many ways. Cultural differences are that buckwheat germinates more readily - especially at higher soil temperatures, and Phacelia is more tolerant of cold and drought.

Phacelia seed needs dark for good germination - bury the seed a 1/4 inch. Phacelia seed also requires cool soil temperatures for germination (although it will grow well in hot, dry soil). Research reports indicate the optimum soil temperature for germination is between 37 to 68°F. Wet or compacted soils reduced germination success. 

Phacelia is highly attractive to honeybees, bumblebees, and syrphid flies, and these insects are valuable pollinators. It provides both pollen (for protein - needed for egg production) and nectar (for carbohydrates - needed for energy).

Insectary plants are those with high volume, quality nectar and/or pollen that are extremely attractive to beneficial insects. They are planted for the primary purpose of attracting pollinators, and predators and parasites of past insects. Phacelia‘s habit of quick growth and long flowering make it highly suitable as an insectary plant. 

Phacelia may be suitable as a winter-killed cover crop when a heavy crop residue is not needed in the spring. Research in other regions shows Phacelia has the potential to produce abundant biomass and does a good job at catching excess nitrates before they leach into groundwater. Phacelia winterkills at about 18°F, and the residue breaks down quickly. Its use as a fall/winter cover crop may be appropriate when it will be followed by a vigorous cash crop (e.g. potatoes) in early spring.

Phacelia seed should be broadcast on a finely prepared seedbed. A cultipacker or rake can be used to bury the seed to a ¼ inch. If possible, lightly irrigate. Phacelia is best planted when the soil temperature is between 37 - 68°F. Research reports show the seeding rate for Phacelia when used as a cover crop as 11 - 18 lbs./acre. Use 7 - 12 lbs./ac if drilling. Use the higher seeding rate to increase Phacelia’s weed suppressing abilities.

When used as a fall/winter catch crop, Phacelia needs to be planted as early as possible in the fall. Phacelia winterkills at 18°F and the residue breaks down quickly. An early spring crop can be planted into the residue.

Use 7 - 12 lbs./ac if drilling. Use the higher seeding rate to increase Phacelia’s weed suppressing abilities. When used as a fall/winter catch crop, Phacelia needs to be planted as early as possible in the fall. Phacelia winterkills at 18°F and the residue breaks down quickly. An early spring crop can be planted into the residue.

Product Information

Phacelia is also being increasingly used in California – especially in vineyards. Phacelia is quick to grow and flower and grows well in dry soil. It does a good job of limiting nitrate leaching when planted in early fall. It winterkills at about 18°F. In cooler regions, it can be used as a between cash crops cover crop in the summer. Phacelia is listed as one of the top 20 honey-producing flowers for honeybees and is also highly attractive to bumblebees and syrphid (hover) flies. Phacelia’s habit of flowering abundantly and for a long period can increase beneficial insect numbers and diversity, because it provides high quality nectar and pollen.  It’s also useful as a cut flower with its unusual and attractive blooms, strong stems, and long vase life. Because Phacelia germinates well at cool temperatures and grows quickly, cut flowers can be available by mid-spring. 

Phacelia is a small seeded annual herb primarily used as a pollinator attractant. Due to the small seed size, it is coated using standard lime-based coating.

Phacelia tanacetifolia is in herbaceous, non-leguminous, flowering annual in the Hydrophyllaceae family. It’s native to the arid Southwest region of the United States and Mexico. Height ranges from 6 to 47 inches. The foliage appears ferny, and the flowers are in flat-topped clusters in shades of purple or occasionally white. Spring- and summer-planted Phacelia flowers approximately 6 to 8 weeks after germination. Flowering continues for 6 to 8 weeks. Phacelia is a long-day plant and requires a minimum of 13 hours of daylight to initiate flowering (roughly mid-April to early September in the mid-Atlantic).

Phacelia is comparable to buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) in many ways. Cultural differences are that buckwheat germinates more readily - especially at higher soil temperatures, and Phacelia is more tolerant of cold and drought.

Phacelia seed needs dark for good germination - bury the seed a 1/4 inch. Phacelia seed also requires cool soil temperatures for germination (although it will grow well in hot, dry soil). Research reports indicate the optimum soil temperature for germination is between 37 to 68°F. Wet or compacted soils reduced germination success. 

Phacelia is highly attractive to honeybees, bumblebees, and syrphid flies, and these insects are valuable pollinators. It provides both pollen (for protein - needed for egg production) and nectar (for carbohydrates - needed for energy).

Insectary plants are those with high volume, quality nectar and/or pollen that are extremely attractive to beneficial insects. They are planted for the primary purpose of attracting pollinators, and predators and parasites of past insects. Phacelia‘s habit of quick growth and long flowering make it highly suitable as an insectary plant. 

Phacelia may be suitable as a winter-killed cover crop when a heavy crop residue is not needed in the spring. Research in other regions shows Phacelia has the potential to produce abundant biomass and does a good job at catching excess nitrates before they leach into groundwater. Phacelia winterkills at about 18°F, and the residue breaks down quickly. Its use as a fall/winter cover crop may be appropriate when it will be followed by a vigorous cash crop (e.g. potatoes) in early spring.

Quick Germination

I added one fluid ounce of seeds to a container with plain sand. Extremely high germination rate, even with seeds above the surface. Love the coating. This Florida non-native will be sewn into a nutrient-poor and excessively drained sandy soil along a gravel and shell easement where little is able to live due to gravel powder/lime runoff. These tough Phacelia stand a chance!

The seeds look great!

The seeds came too late to use in my field this season, but they look great. I tested some in a pot and the germination rate was amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing how they do in the field.

Nice seed but purchase in advance

This is the third year that I have purchased Phacellia seed from Hancock. Germination has been very good in many different conditions and the plants are robust. My only issue has been a lack of availability in the spring when I need it the most. Now I order a year in advance so that I can keep it on hand.
