End of Spring

bottlebrush bloom

Sunday, 2 January 2011

Spring has finished, yet many of the native flowers in Australia are still blooming. This bottlebrush type flower attracts the bees including the bumble bees.

Are there special colours that attract insects to flowers?

What other plants do you know that have a bottlebrush effect?

If you were planning your own garden to attract birds and insects, what flower would you have as a centre piece?
