Mountain Ash (Rowan tree)

Posted by blueberrytalk on May 5, 2010

The Mountain Ash attracts a lot of bees right when the blueberries are in bloom. The way the bees scramble over the flowers indicates they are after pollen rather than nectar. The Mountain Ash is reputed to be a source of nectar as well as pollen but I haven’t seen any bees going after nectar.
