We often see Phacelia tanacetifolia on iSpot.This is it's much classier relative, a gorgeous hardy annual from S. California, which gardeners grow in hardy annual borders.The flower colour is an intense blue which in my opinion rivals Gentiana,I have tried various camera settings to bring out the blue colouration(not always successfully). Can be seen very successfully at the Eden project in the Chaparral section.Sadly, not long lived but once you sow it
It can self seed in good years.
