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.

Verbena bonariensis

Posted by blueberrytalk on September 12, 2011

The numerous Verbena bonariensis plants we have this year self seeded from one plant last year. The ability to self seed so readily could get this plant labelled as an “invasive species”. It rises to a height well above most weeds. Unlike Sedum it attracts a wide range of pollinating insects.
