The yellow beeplant is a little smaller than the purple one.
Both species grow along roadsides and in sandy overgrazed land
in foothill areas.
Rocky Mountain Beeplant
Beeplants grow up to 4 feet tall, and have beautiful showy
clusters of flowers at the tops of the stalks. The flowers
have a feathery appearance because of their long stamens.
They secrete much nectar, and therefore attract bees which
gather it for making their honey.
