A bee prepares to land amid a cluster of white flowers on the end of a branch. In the blurring distance, other bees approach flowers on the same tree.

If you’ve recently walked by the Bioengineering and Sciences Building or the north end of Cottonwood Creek, you’ve probably seen and smelled the blossoms from the Mexican Plum trees (Prunus mexicana) that have started to bloom on campus. The UTD honey bees definitely took notice, and have been visiting those flowers since they opened. These trees, and the other species of young trees around them, were planted during the third phase of the Campus Landscape Enhancement Project.
