ACT - whats in flower Autumn/Winter 2020 for bees?


its been a while since I last posted so thought it was worth throwing out the challenge to ask whats in flower & where around the ACT at present and also as we head into winter?

Photos typically appreciated as this helps most of us better identify the plant in question.

Keep safe,




500 metre walk up the street in Holder (Weston Creek) identified the following in flower with bees working them;

Hakea Pincushion
Lavender (french)
Iron bank (two trees with different colours)

I’ll take a walk in the other direction tomorrow and see what else I can observe the bees working.


Seen a Callistemon flowering event in Monash, and the bees working them quite hard. Also my neighbour’s extensive rose garden is doing very well from the girls.
