I will try to keep this short and simple. Kansas State University is the agriculture college here in Kansas. They have trial fields in 3 areas in the state. One happens to be very close to me. They test new varieties of vegetables, flowers, grasses, etc, to see how well they perform in Kansas. And let me tell you, if something flourishes here, that's a big accomplishment. Yesterday was their annual open house. They allow the public to come and see and learn by walking through the field trials and set in on lectures and demonstrations. It's also an opportunity for the public to ask the experts questions. I always try to attend. In walking the plots of annual and perennial varieties of flowers, I noticed a new variety of portulaca(rose moss) that was covered with honey bees. There were lots of different varieties of pollinators all over, but Portulaca oleracea attracted the honey bees. The name to look for when ordering seeds or buying plants is Portulaca Pazazz Jumbo White or Red Flare. The blooms are larger than the old fashioned rose moss. The bees were packing away the pollen.
