Geum Queen of Orange with imposter


Geum Queen of Orange with imposter (Geum coccineum 'Queen of Orange')

Lovely plant but this is a fly not a bee. Easy to think it was.

Yes, you would think so. I have this Geum and it only flowered for a handful of weeks, it seemed to start flowering then quickly finish!

Mm, haven't seen mine, Queen that is, not fly.

This is of the Bot or Warble fly family. The Ox warble fly is similar.
