Chrysos Designs Artworks, Lacecap 1, oil on panel, 11 x 14

The Lacecap Hydrangea has beautiful showy flowers all around the edge of the “lace” in the middle. But the bumblebees ignore these flowers. On closer inspection, the flowers have no pistil or stamens, and no pollen. The bees zoom in to the hard little buds in the middle. When you look very closely you can see these buds open with tiny pistils and stamens, with anthers covered with pollen. They are the true flowers on the plant and the showy petals are only signal-flags ringing the landing pad.
