With the unseasonably warm weather this November, the bees–honey bees, bumblebees and others are still foraging. The standout in my garden isĀ Boltonia asteroides, or ‘False Aster’. With an amazing long-lasting and ultra-late bloom, this plant is just the best at providing late season food for our insect friends. On top of that it is a visual knock-out, livening up the garden just before true winter arrives.
