Lacy Phacelia is also known as Lacy Scorpion-weed. This bristly annual is native to California and Arizona and is found in open flats and slopes below 4,000 feet. The violet flowers occur in fiddlehead clusters, which unfold more as plants continue to bloom. Can cause skin irrigation in sensitive individuals. Used extensively as a cover crop and for bee forage. It is a top honey-producing plant for honeybees, and many native pollinators and beneficial insects are attracted to it. Tolerant of poor soils and drought.
