Thank You! This plant blooms so late it the year here that there are basically no more nectaring places left. Bees of all types, Fall butterflies, Moths and Skippers all mob it. On cool mornings at Sunup we have found 12 or more Bumble Bees who were too chilled to fly off. As soon as the Sun hits them they warm up and start feeding again..... AMAZING to watch. Ric
