Bee at Work


I wanted a picture of this plant, a shrub in my neighbor’s yard, for a trip to the nursery. It wasn’t until I was standing there that I realized the bush was full of bees. One happened to alight in one place long enough for me to get it in the frame. End of story. Except to mention that the nursery folks opined that the plant is some form of Cuphea; further research identifies this specimen as Cuphea lanceolata Starfire.

  1. We’ve already requested a couple of these from Berkeley Hort when next available, so add yourself to the list! The block can have quite a bee haven.
    There are other colors but I like the red and blue.
