Looks like the purple plant is drought resistant. Hey Geoff you may want to move your bees.  grin

It is the lavender plants that get my bees through much of the dry period here in Northern California.
They can't get enough of these flowers.

I planted six lavender next to my hives and I am glad to here is helps during the dry season in California.  I understand lavender honey is great and here it comands a good price.

It is getting cold even here in sacramento, California.  I expect the first snow in Fiddletown (where my bees are) this week.
