Heptacodium or Seven Sons tree is named  for the seven flowers that grow on a stem. Looks like it’s good for pollen and nectar.

Verbena bonariensis in September

Posted by blueberrytalk on October 1, 2011

Foraging opportunities for bees improve during September as many more blossoms open in the flower head of the Verbena bonariensis. At the same time some flower seeds mature and are scattered widely by this tall plant. The background picture shows the blossoms scattered on the ground.
