In my continuing efforts to document flowers in and around St. John’s that seem to attract honey bees, allow me to introduce a viney plant we call Morning Glory that blooms around this time of the year. Here’s a photo from September 5th, 2011, proof that honey bees go for it:
I first recognized Morning Glory as a pollen and nectar source for the bees after saw what I thought were Mutant Bees. Here’s another shot of Morning Glory from September 18th, 2013:
It’s also known as Field Bindwind or Convolvulus arvensis.
We know it as bindweed in England. Your name is more poetic, I like it.
Convolvulis arvensis….. Nice…
