June 21, 2010 marked the start of Echinacea flowering in the common garden this year. As of June 28, 2010 113 plants had started producing pollen. Approximately 775 plants will flower this season with a total of 1062 heads. We will be busy keeping track of the first and last day of pollen production per plant. As you can see from the pictures above, the pollinators are back at work, too!

Great photos Gretel! If I do not succeed in getting photos like these of the pollinators I am studying, do you mind if I use your pictures? (I would acknowledge you of course!)
