Thanks Chef, they really throw themselves into the blossoms to the point where just the end of their abdomens are showing. The bees have quite a bit of pollen on their backs due to the fact that they must crawl so deeply into the the blossoms to get the nector. Humingbirds like these plants quite a bit too. My hives are smelling very sweet lately, so maybe these plants have something to do with that.
