Bees and jade plant do not seem to be a natural pairing until you see the jade plant in flower. And my jade plant is in full flower. Wow! This plant has been flowering every winter for the past few years – prettier than snow, I’d say! When the flowers wither, they fall off by themselves.
This gorgeous succulent started off as a small indoor houseplant many years ago and has since developed its full potential once it was transplanted into the ground. It has grown tall and it spreads.
The bee is in the middle of the photo and it is one of many that were buzzing around today!
CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: Ingestion of the sap of the jade plant may cause illness and skin contact with the sap may also cause dermatitis. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
