Bees love Hogweeds

In midsummer, the umbellifers are fantastic plants for bees and other insects. These pictures show Heracleum sphondylium and probably hybrids with our native Heracleum sibiricum. They are stunning plants too…and did I say that they are productive, tasty perennial vegetables too. Should be in every garden! Just be careful of the sunny weather sap!
