An amazing old fashioned rose, Quadra Island,BC
This beautiful and wonderfully scented rose is a mega-attractant to bees.
A old variety that has a great capacity for nectar production. It was quite amazing to see so many bumble bees in one flower. It was like they were standing in line for some nectar. Bumble bees were so busy getting into the flower they took no notice of the photographer.
|This rose bush stands about 4 feet tall.|
|This rose is so attractive to bumble bees that at one
point there were 6 bees inside this one flower.
|More bees in this rose.|
