plant these things sorry i don't know the name but i tell you what it is LOADED with honey bee's wasps bumble bees you name it if i collects nectar these seem to be loaded. i had to use a towel to fan the flowers to get some of the feeders out of the pic.The problem is the bees like the sugar water also and they are starving right now. We are in a dearth, i.e. no nectar flow.
If there is a good nectar source you will see that highway. We saw it when the black locust bloomed this year. Non stop flying to the south east from us. We put is ornamental grasses in front of the hives to convince them to fly up and over them. Now I can walk in front of the hives to get to the rest of the yard.That's insane i don't mind bees one bit i enjoy watching them do there work but holly bee. That's one flight path you don't want to get in the middle of or try to drive through on your bike. i can feel it now i'd look like quazimoto with all the bee stings in the face
I get stared at when I haul out the sugar. I had 400 lbs on the cart, the rest will be used up tomorrow. Need to head back for more. Some do ask what the heck............the one check out lady knows me, she just says feeding time again!They're like "here comes that lady with the crazy sweet tooth!"
