The honey bee and the California sunflower

September 19, 2016

 

 

 

 

The California sunflower plant that I bought from Oaktown Native Nursery last Fall is starting to produce blossoms.  http://www.oaktownnativenursery.info/

 

 

 

This is a great sunflower to grow because it is a perennial.

The blossoms are small, about 2 inches in diameter.

 

 

 

Above is an image of a honey bee flying to one of the sunflowers.
