As the name implies, this handsome perennial wildflower can grow to a whopping 6′ tall under ideal conditions. Tall phacelia has pleasant cream or green colored, bell-shaped flowers that grow in a curved or coiled cyme, and are highly attractive to native bees and other pollinators. Blooms June-August. The flower is glandular. Native to the northern part of the West Coast, tall phacelia produces a tall flowering stem from a taproot, and has lance-shaped or oval leaves. It grows in moist mountain meadows, talus, openings in forests, and other mountainous locations at mid to high elevations. Deer resistant.
