Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule) is a ubiquitous weed like plant growing low to the ground. This one was photographed at the Silent Valley Club in the San Jacinto Mountains at 3200 feet on March 15, 2012. Such an elegant flower for something so small. The flower is probably no taller than 1/2 inch. This plant is very common as ground cover all over the resort. Where common, it is an important nectar and pollen plant for bees, especially honeybees. Notice the ornate structure of the purple flower with two purple dots in the throat. The pollen is hanging above. Bees pollinate these little guys. Each flower is just a bit larger than a matchstick tip.
