Phacelia, also know variously as blue tansy, scorpion weed, fiddleneck, is a member

of the borage family that originates from south-western North America. It is widely

cultivated for use as a constituent in green manure crops, cover crops, and diverse

annual forage mixes. Phacelia is also very highly regarded as a bee forage and for

beneficial insects such as hoverflies.
