DOUGLAS SPIREA | Spiraea Douglasii with Bumblebee

As industrious as honeybees, bumblebees collect nectar and pollen from a wide variety of plants. They are excellent pollinators of vegetables, flowers, and fruit trees and are essential to pollination and fruit set of commercial and home crops including many types of berries.    Each species of bumblebee has a different range of flowers that it pollinates, but the different species together are usually capable of pollinating many of the plants in a flower or vegetable garden.
