Sunflowers and Native Bees

This is reason enough to grow sunflowers.

This sunflower is beside the pond and gets the morning sun. It has lots of tiny native bees and a single larger one. I’m not sure what type of bee it is.


And here are some more against the fence facing west.

Note to self: get some more seeds planted so there is a continuous supply.

I’ve had good results planting seeds in tube stocks and then planting out.

Sunflowers get flattened by wind in this garden so the two flowers above are against the fence with string tied between the railings to support them.
