The long-shaped blooms of Foxgloves do not appeal to bees. They evolve and develop their mature shape with the help of hummingbirds, which have long, thin beaks that can reach through the long throat of Foxgloves.

That is because some species of cauliflower attract bees. It seems that cauliflower seeds attract bees more than their fruits do.

In that case, I can conclude that we have different experience with roses. It is, perhaps, because of the species of roses that we use. Or, maybe, because of some external factors that make the roses attract bees and other insects.

I, in fact, searched that species of bee on Google. It’s a waste, though, that these bees do not help flowers pollinate. Nevertheless, they are beneficial in the garden at some point.
