[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lavatera is an old cottage garden favorite introduced to England in 1633 from the Mediterranean. It's a vigorous, shrub-like plant with a thick, upright stem and attractive, dark green, maple-shaped foliage covered from midsummer until autumn with large, openly bell-shaped flowers in shades of red, pink and pure white. They have a satiny sheen and are often striped with darker veining, which you can see in my photo. The bee is clearly nature's pollen transporter!
