Yes, plants and pollinators evolved together... they have it all figured out!

Good, I hope you're right. I have lots of bumblebees.
Of the plants that grew from the batch of seeds I had, it looks like only this plant is the real deal so I really want it to set seeds.
I gave it a bit of a tickle yesterday :)

One of my old favorits is Digitalis purpurea. This species grows wild along the coast in southern parts of Norway, however many use them in gardens too. They stay green all winter with a rosette of leaves and in summer  tolerate rather dry conditions. The flowering period is all summer when the tallest well fed plants in can reach 2m or more!
