Heptacodium – a bee delight

Posted by blueberrytalk on September 2, 2012

This plant blossomed at least a month earlier than last year. This is an unusual characteristic of this tree to blossom earlier as it grows older!

The bees love it for its nectar and pollen and its timeing is perfect in providing forage at a time of year when other sources are finishing up.
