Hoverflies are pollinators too! Syrphid or flower flies may not be as hairy as bees but they are great pollination contributors. This vibrant flower is Coreopsis 'Nana.' Happy Pollinator Week!

Finishing up this pretty lady’s gallery today!

National Pollinator Week celebrates the diversity of pollinators. This Gray Hairstreak is visiting the beautiful allium flower. Nectar plants are great for adult butterflies but you can boost the probability of certain species by planting larval food resources. For example, milkweed for monarchs, pipevine for pipevine swallowtails, buckwheat for a variety of species.
This photo was captured by Arboretum staff member Angelica while mapping the pollinator garden.

The California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) is native to both California and Mexico and can bloom in a variety of colors from red to the classic orange. There is disagreements as to where the petals came from as seen in this article: http://www.science.canterbury.ac.nz/nzns/issues/vol39-2014/conner.pdf obviously as a trained geneticist I’d be remiss if I didn’t include a scientific article. Another interesting thing about these plants is that they are used in erosion control and are purposefully planted along the road way in CA #california #ucdavisarboretum #poppy #science #optoutside #nofilter #mikehikes #todayilearned

It's an aster embrace! This cute sweat bee was resting in the shelter of an Aster 'Monch.' Happy National Pollinator Week!

Happy National Pollinator Week! The native sweat bees (Halictidae) have been visiting the yarrow (Achillea millefolium) in droves this spring! Instead of the pollen baskets of honeybees and bumblebees, sweat bees have really hairy legs for collecting pollen.

It's National Pollinator Week! This native yellow-faced bumble bee is pollinating California phacelia (Phacelia californica). Visit pollinator.org to see how you can support our local pollinators!

UC Davis Arboretum today. Love the riot of texture and color. Everything is vibrating with life. #ucdavisarboretum #plantgirl #color #life

#funfactfriday The fashionable UC Davis Water Tower, is located by the scenic Arboretum. The UC Davis logo was added during an incidental repainting of the tower on September 21, 1995.

The Dairy Field Water Tower is near the cow milking facilities on campus. In Fall of 2007, it was also repainted and now includes the UC Davis logo. It has also been unofficially named "Touchdown Tower" for its close proximity to the new Aggie Stadium. Prior to 2007, it was emblazoned with the old school Aggie Logo.

Both water towers described above are owned by UC Davis.
