Look At Me, Look At Me, Look At Me!

This otherwise demure aeonium is springing forth with exuberance as a way to attract pollinators. It will bloom for a couple months and then the main rosette will die away, leaving the numerous 'pups' to carry on in its place.

Isn't that brilliant, the way the bloom is so large to attract pollinators. Ain't Nature grand? :)

Are you sure it's not just trying to hail a cab?

That is a great picture. The bloom is huge, I'm sure it won't be missed.
