'Thunderhead'

Hylotelephium is always a fall favorite for the bees

Great banner Dirt!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Great banner! I saw Thunderhead in bloom for the first time just this year, and I'm going to look for it next year to plant. Didn't realize the genus is Hylotelephium now, instead of Sedum.

Thanks --Sedum is still what comes out of my mouth, so much easier and fun to keep calling stuff what I always called it Whistling

Love it Dirt!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others. ~~ Sharon Brown

Your banner is a beautiful way to enjoy the joy bees bring to any garden scene, but your caption also helped re-educate me taxonomically (if that's even a word). Now I'm burdened with the knowledge (if Wikipedia can be trusted) that the genus sedum has had 32 segregate genera split off from it recently, including this one, Hylotelephium. Where once there were 600, more or less, species of sedum, there now are a mere 420-470 species. For now. Tune in next month, or next year. The situation may have changed. Smiling
