“James & I planted a Desert Willow in our front yard a few years ago, and boy, has it been the happenin’ place for butterflies, hummingbirds & very friendly, big black bees. It does drop its leaves in the winter, but comes out with lacy, beautiful foliage in the spring. Loves the sun and is drought tolerant once established.” Sally Gill, Owner

Bulbs for bees - This is glory of the snow. Also plant snowdrops, aconite, bluebells, crocuses, hycinths, waterlily tulips, alliums, and red hot pockers. Daphodils are good too.

Bulbs are a favorite of many gardeners because they are easy and showy. Who can resist the first snowdrops or crocuses? Honey bees like to visit the blossoms for nectar and pollen, so I'm busy adding more bulbs to my garden just for them and for me.

Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) - Major #honeybee nectar source for monofloral #honey. Not a good urban landscape tree due to aggressive roots and nasty thorns.

PN: Black Locust - firewood up to honey source,thorn security, secondary agriculture, produces nitrogen.
