Lacy phacelia "Stala".
Valuable annual melliferous, fodder, green manure and ornamental plant. Belongs to the Aquatic family. Forms a branched stem 30-70 cm high, covered with hairs. The leaves are alternate, sometimes with a bluish tint. In the middle of summer, small blue or pale blue flowers up to 2 cm in diameter are formed. When spring sowing, flowering begins in 35 - 40 days and lasts up to 1.5 months. Phacelia is considered an excellent honey plant. Each flower lives for 2 days, releasing up to 4 - 5 mg of nectar, from which high quality honey is obtained. In addition, phacelia is used as a "green manure". It is sown in sunny areas with poor soils.
Then the land is plowed, burying the whole plants, and thus enriching the soil with organic matter. As an ornamental plant used as a background, it looks great as a free-standing curtain, goes well with any other flowering plants. The optimum soil temperature for seed germination is +18+20°C.
The seeding rate is 9-12 kg/ha (6.0 g/m2) 700 seeds per 1 g (it is recommended to roll the soil after sowing). You can sow phacelia in April or later - at the beginning of each month (from the end of July to October). In this way, you can get a continuous conveyor of honey phacelia.
Phacelia can also be used as livestock feed, sown in a mixture with cereals and legumes.
