Purple Phacelia is a great one to choose when creating a beautiful groundcover for a natural area or another place on a lawn. They grow in climate zones three through nine and thrive in moist and average soil conditions. They love being in areas that offer full shade and partial shade, so they grow great in wooded areas. These plants bloom in the middle of spring and show off their gorgeous lavender blooms. This plant is also great to attract bees to a location.
