The Sapphire Salvia spires are blooming

May 16, 2016

 

 

The Sapphire Salvia plants are blooming and ready for the pollinators!

Even before the blossoms opened up, bees and hummingbirds were constantly circling the area.

And now their patience is rewarded.

 

 

 

Above is an image of a male carpenter bee on one of the blossoms.

These bees circle the plants all day long, trying to chase each other away from the blossoms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here is a wool carder bee climbing into a one of the Sapphire Salvia blossoms.

The nectar of these plants must be very tasty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here are some of those lovely spires of one of the Sapphire Salvia plants.
