Diascia, like all flowering plants, do attract bees and other pollinating insects. Insects visit to extract nectar and to transfer pollen so flowers can develop seeds. Diascia flowers, also known as Twinspur, have two prominent spurs on the back where fragrant oils are produced. These oils are attractive to bees.
