Perfect for bees and the garden


Picked this seed last summer specifically for the bees and it did not disappoint. Waiting to see how much it self-seeded once the temperatures warm up here in zone 5/6. Lovely purple flowers and provided a nice filler flower for bare areas in the garden, while providing the bees with food. Will be planting again this year.
