Bog Heather

Cross-leaved heath grows best in boggy soils. The flowers are important for bumble bees and various butterflies, such as the silver-studded blue. Only bumble bees with a long tongue are able to get to the nectar without any effort. Bumble bees with short tongues bite holes low down in the petals so that they too can get to the sweet nectar. Honey bees profit from these holes. © Copyright Ecomare (licence)
