I planted this plant after it was recommended in several books and online forums as being attractive to pollinators. After all, one of its common names is "bee's friend." In reality, however, I have found it to be far less attractive and far less popular with bees than the borage (Borago officinalis) I have planted. This phacelia has a weedy, rangy, brittle growth habit and the flowers, while interesting, do not really look good in a garden setting, even in a very informal cottage-y one like mine.
