I look forward every year to seeing the Guayacan shrub bloom and it seems the bees look forward to it too. I love the tiny purple flowers that bloom on the plant at this time of year.
It's one of the plants that I spent some time admiring and photographing on my two walks at the Desert Botanical Garden last weekend.
The entire shrub is not as photogenic as the tiny flowers are but this at least gives an idea of how big and full it gets. I guess some places actually trim it so it looks like a small tree. It's those pretty purple flowers that appeal to me.
