A hive of bees will fly 90,000 miles, the equivalent of three orbits around the earth to collect 1 kg of honey. It takes one ounce of honey to fuel a bee's flight around the world.

GROWING TIPS

Plant in partial shade to shade in moist, acidic, well-drained soil.  It will appreciate protection from winter sun and sweeping winds. Removing spent flowers will increase next years bloom. Avoid extremely hot locations.
