A new for me plant that is both edimental (edible and ornamental) and is also bird food in the winter! Even more reason to grow North American Anise Hyssop (anisisop), Agastache foeniculum, on which these redpolls (gråsisik) are feeding…
I’ve been observing edimentals liked by the bees over the last week…and the winners are the following genera: Allium, Cirsium, Papaver, Trifolium, Dictamnus, Knautia, Campanula, Codonopsis and Aquilegia
I only need to find the time to get out Tor Bollingmo’s (Norwegian) book and attempt to identify the bee species!
