Phacelia in Spring Vineyard

I know Phacelia (Scorpionweed) already a long time. Many species are cultivated as garden plants and honey plants. I love this wonderful flower which attracts bees and bumblebees.

Now I saw it for the first time planted between the wine rows and like the blue colour between the green lines. I think the wingrowers use it as green manure how I used to do in my own garden many years. This vineyard is in Kleinheppach (Region Stuttgart, Germany).

 

Much better in Large On Black
