Sundrops -- Coming Soon
Pollinator value: Very High. Butterflies, moths, beetles, native bees.
Large yellow flowers open in spring on red buds and stems tinged with red. Each bloom lasts just a day, but a profusion of blooms follows creating a carpet of yellow in the sunny garden.
Sundrops is happy if given room to spread out.
