It's definitely not evening primrose Hestor, they're are numerous and still at rosette stage at the foot of this one. Sorry the latest pics were no good but imagine the tight green, with a hint of purple, heads of broccoli before they open yellow. You could almost pick these thinking they were broccoli if it wasn't for the lower leaves.
I haven't noticed the bees on this violet particularly Aliesh but maybe haven't looked at the right time.
