Description

This Copper Canyon Daisy surprised me by being a bush and being a plant that flowered in the fall; the bees of all sorts were enjoying it. Hope their honey tastes better than this plant smells; can see why it would be a deer deterrent.

Poverty Weed (Bachharis neglecta) along McWhorter Creek (in Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area) is COVERED in Monarch butterflies (as well as bees, wasps, and more). Monarchs may be stopping for the evening. Poverty Weed in full bloom and strongly scented. Poverty weed + nearby water could be a great stopping point for migrating Monarchs.

About

I am interested in seeing what kind of pollinators people find in their area. Some think it is just honey bees, but it is so much more than that.

Butterflies, skippers, moths, , birds, bats, beetles, flies, mosquitoes, ants, wasps and bees.

What are you seeing on the flowers right now?
