No I suspect you don't need to do anything. I find that some leaves turn yellow in fall and a few may even drop but most turn red and remain on the shrub.

We are thinking of planting Little Henry's along our new deck, but are concerned about them attracting bees. Has anyone found that the blooms attract lots of bees? We are just concerned that with young children who create lots of spills, attracting bees may not be somewhat we want.

Bees in the garden are a good thing! Without them we wouldn't have many of the foods we enjoy. So yes the flowers will attract bees, as most flowers so. Unless your children have known bee allergies I wouldn't be concerned. I taught my own children from a very young age to 'look but don't touch without asking first'. That went for plants, store displays and yes even insects. It's a good lesson for them to learn. Likewise if they spill food or drink to clean up after themselves :) Guess I need to start over with grandchildren now!! Good luck and enjoy the joys of teaching your children about the garden.
