Great picture of the bee in flight.
I don't know what is more beautiful - the flower or the bee!
Does the foliage on Russian Sage smell like black licorice when you break it?
Wow! Yes it does! I never knew that...
Cool,I asked because it looks a lot like a plant that grows in my garden but I have no ID for, other than it smells like black licorice. Now I know what the heck I have.
My plant that looks like yours, and smells like licorace, is Giant Hyssop--(Agastache) and I just love them...I've got at least 6 of them spread around my gardens. I wish I could eat them, that's how good they smell to me...and they bring the bees in who of course, we need to keep alive!
I just came in from the garden where I was fondling my plant to get the smell of the foliage and then it hit me,"that plant on metro farming isn't Russian Sage." But I see Jan has already been here to correct the record. :0)I don't think mine is a Giant Hyssop because it is smaller-looking than the Google pics but probably some other variety of the same plant.Cheers.
hmmm... I've been calling this Russian Sage for years.. I will do some investigating and try to get a confirmed ID.
Giant-Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum)Thanks for the corrections!!
