Notes:

A friend of mine would love to have more bees pollinate his garden and found this flowering plant somewhere in SC that the bees were going crazy for it! Does anyone know what this is? Thanks!

    Verbena….we have this in our garden. Have often seen a Hummingbird moth enjoying the nectar along with the bees.

    Borage family, originally from Argentina.
    Despite the similarity in appearance, not verbena.
