Winter Bee Buzz

 Agave desmettiana 'El Miradore's Gold'
If you use the M7 motorway in Sydney, the Agave plants in the median strip have been in flower for some time. They look stately and quite spectacular when seen in a large formal planting like this. I have two in flower in the garden at the moment and the flower stems reach about 5 metres in height. The opening flowers are laden with pollen and the buzz from the bees in attendance is audible from some distance away.
