California Bluebell (Phacelia Campanularia) - Grown from Phacelia Campanularia seeds, the California Bluebell is native to the deserts of California, and it is known for its vibrant cobalt blue blooms. California Bluebell is one of the few wildflower seeds that can grow into a good cut flower. Phacelia Campanularia is also known as Desert Bluebells, and the plant can grow in sandy soils and desert-like climates, but it is also adaptive to other climates. This annual wildflower grows very quickly and blooms early in the spring. Phacelia Campanularia can reseed itself if seed falls onto bare ground.
California Bluebell seeds should be started directly outside with optimum germination temperatures of 50 - 55 degrees. Sow the Desert Bluebell wild flower seeds 1/16 inch deep before the last frost of spring. Darkness and shade are two important factors that can help California Bluebell flower seed to germinate. Hot days and cold nights, in combination with full sun or partial shade provide the best growing conditions. Phacelia Campanularia will grow in all regions of North America, but is native to southwestern deserts.
