Five Spot

Five Spot (Nemophila maculate) in an annual plant native to California. I grew it last year and was very happy with it. It is compact, growing in a mound of about 9″ tall and covered with flowers that the bees seem to love. It worked well as an edge plant, but can be used in rock gardens, planters, and edging for raised beds according to West Coast Seeds. It won’t take the heat of full sun, so best planted where it will get some shade. Probably best with morning sun and afternoon shade. I got the seeds from ‘West Coast Seeds‘ and you can either direct sow when risk of frost has passed, or start them in trays and transplant later. This is not an invasive plant, and if planted in the right spot will come up year after year.
