2018, SIZE colored pencils, graphite pencils and pastels. Physostegia is depicted, in this detail from ‘Physostegia - Insect Visitors’, as a stem with its first blooms which begin at the bottom of the stalk. As each bloom dies, another opens above it continuing the repetitious pattern upward until they stop at the top stem tip and finish flowering. The flowers of Physostegia attract a great many insects, especially bees.
