  Carpenter Bee DOESN'T Pollinate False Dragonhead

About

Published on Aug 24, 2012

The Carpenter bee is a notorious nectar robber, often cutting holes in the base of tubular flowers instead of entering them legitimately in a manner that would effect pollination. They also drink from holes cut by previous visitors. This flower is false dragongead, Physostegia virginiana, a perennial wildflower in the mint family (Lamiaceae) growing at a reconstructed prairie in Marion, Ohio, USA.
