NEMOPHILA

Grows 6 to 12 in. high and trailing to 1 ft. wide, with bell-shaped flowers to 1 in. across in spring. Pale green, hairy, ferny leaves give plants a delicate appearance. Often used as bulb cover.

Broadcast seed in place. In cold-winter areas, sow as soon as the ground is workable in spring; in mild-winter regions, plant in fall. Plant is quickly killed by heat and humidity. Reseeds when grown under cool, moist conditions.

Nemophila menziesii

Native to California, southern Oregon. Blooms as freely in gardens as it does in the wild, bearing sky blue blossoms with a white or near-white center.
