Phacelia bipinnatifida with light colored flowers

After growing this biennial for decades, I've noticed a chance seedling with light flowers. You can see a small stripe in one flower which shows the purple typical of the species.

    Hi Carol, I just now noticed your thread. That is really cool. I'm thinking about growing that species maybe next year. This year is my first year growing the Virginia waterleaf. I was surprised this species is biennial. I have this sort of annual pretty spring flowering weed from that subfamily, Ellisia nyctea. The seedlings are everywhere right now. Thanks for sharing the pic!
