Verbascum and the Bees

Verbascum phoeniceum ‘Flush of White’

Summer has officially arrived! I had a terrific weekend visiting some terrific gardens including the famous North Hill garden of Joe Eck and the late Wayne Winterrowd the co-authors of Our Life in Gardens. Before I can even sort through all the photographs I had to throw these pictures up of this incredible Verbascum covered in bees. This is one of those flowers that is so striking right now that everyone asks who it is. The bees are wild for it too!

This Verbascum is springing through the giant bleeding heart. A bee comes in for a landing.
