Surprising Shrimp plant

After a long waiting, with only to males as rare visitors of my garden;  finally the action began.  For two weeks now, one juvenile male and two females are the most precious residents of the garden. They hover over the flowers, the youngest are so curious and they are testing each one. They love  Agastache, Bee Balm,  Zinnia, Weigela, Penstemons and more others. This year I extended my hummingbird flower collection, with new Agastaches and Salvias, Mina Lobata, Major Wheeler Honeysuckle, Cobaea,  Cuphea Ignea.

But the surprise came from the two braided Shrimp plants (Justicia brandegeana). They just love it, and they pick every flower again and again. It’s just wonderful to watch them.
