Mirabilis jalapa also known commonly as Four O'Clock Plant, Marvel-of-peru, and Beauty of the night is a low nectar and pollen source for honeybees. "Blooms year around. This hardy plant tolerates poor soil, aridity and a semi-shady location. Propagated by seed' (p. 43 Le Corre 1985) "Its common name, four-o'clock, alludes to the fact that the flowers only open towards dusk, at four-o'clock at some latitudes. Sow seeds with the advent of hot weather and soil temperatures reach the eighty-degree range. Germination usually takes less than two weeks. In colder areas, they should be lifted and stored for use next fall. Readily multiply from seed, but prized strains should be propagated via their tubers rather via seedings." (Griffith, L. D., & Lombardi, B. T. (2010).

Chamerion angustifolium also known as Epilobium angustifolium subsp. macrophyllum and commonly known as Fireweed, Willow herb, Great willow, Rosebay herb is a great nectar and pollen source of honeybees. "Perennial herb [blooms in]... Cascade and Coast Ranges in burned over and clear cut areas [in Oregon] A major source of fine quality honey, but produces irregularly. Fireweed is gradually replaced by a succession of woody plants." (Burgett, D. M., Stringer, B. A., & Johnston, L. R. D. (1989). Nectar and Pollen Plants of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest) "Growing in dense stands in areas recently burned over. This far-northern species is found from Greenland to Alaska south to northern US. Fireweed produces tons of extra white, mild honey in late summer. Yields up to 150 lbs per colony have been reported. No other major honey plant grows as far north as fireweed." (Lovell, H. B. (1966). Honey Plants Manual) "...4-7 feet high. Common on newly cleared woodland, especially where the ground has been burned over throughout N. Am."(Schuyler, M. F. (1955). Field Book of American Wild Flowers) Also known as Gewoon wilgenroosje in Dutch; Maitohorsma in Finnish; Épilobe en épi, Laurier de saint Antoine in French; Schmalblättriges Weidenröschen in German and mjölke in Swedish; respectively. #Repost @bee_whyld (@get_repost) ・・・ Fireweed, one of the greatest symbols of rising from the ashes.

Anethum graveolens also commonly known as Dill and Indian Dill is a low source of pollen and nectar for honeybees. Honeybees do increase seed set on Dill plants. "Aromatic annual or biennal herb grown in Europe, USA, and India, and a little in the tropics. The seed and leaves are used for flavouring. Propagation by seeds. Male, female and bisexual flowers may all appear on the same plant. They are much visited by insects, but little nectar is produced compared to other umbelliferous crops. Insect pollination is essential for a good seed set; flies and bees have been recorded as pollinators, and since the fly population is likely to be insufficient, hives of honeybees should be moved to the fields if good seed yields are wanted. It is reported that fennel with cross-pollinate with dill." (Crane, E., & Walker, P. (1984).

Nymphaea nouchali also known as Nymphaea stellata and commonly known as Blue water lily, is a good source of pollen and a low source of nectar as the sugar is only 3-5%. "…Rivers, lakes and pools; also widely-used ornamental. Large floating flowers pale blue to pink to white. Nectar with 3-5% sugar is not collected by honeybees. Pollen orange or dark yellow. Pollen crude protein 30%. In an Australian species, a stigmatic fluid collects pollen grains from bees' bodies on the first day of flowering." (Johannsmeier, M. F. (2016).

Amaranthus also known commonly as Amaranthus is a good source of pollen for honeybees. "In the Midwest, several species of Amaranthus can be found in areas of disturbed soil that have plenty of moisture and sunlight, in empty lots, fields, farmland, and drainage areas or river floodplains. Tall and weedy, amaranth grows 6 to 8 feet tall, depending on growing conditions and soil....The flower cluster,which has both male and female flowers, can be up to 12 inches long. In fall, the cluster can bow under the weight of the seeds. Where and When to Gather Amaranth is an annual plant. Harvest tender greens in early to mid-spring. By mid- to late summer, the plant will have grown tall and tough and have already gone to seed. It’s common for amaranth to thrive in disturbed areas, particularly in the city, around developments, and in farmland areas. As amaranth is mineral-dense, it can also take up lead and nitrates that may be present in the soil into its stem and leaves. Harvest in an area where you are familiar with soil quality...The heavy seed heads of the amaranth disperse seed across open fields and disturbed areas of land. It is prolific and regenerates easily. Overharvesting does not seem to be a significant problem with amaranth." (Rose, L. M. (2015). Midwest Foraging.p 37-38)) Also known as Amarant in Dutch; Revonhännät in Finnish; Amarante in French; Amarant in German; amarantslekta in Norwegian Bokmål; Амарант in Russian; and amaranter in Swedish; respectively.

Corymbia citriodora previously known as Eucalyptus citriodora and also commonly known as Lemon-scented gum and Citrus scented gum is a good source of pollen with 24-33% crude protein and a high source of nectar with possibility of producing 70kg/hive. "Fast growth rate. Buds for 12- 15 months before breaking. Good pollen but lacks amino acid isoleucine. Nectar and pollen every 1 - 3 years." "...Smooth white powdery bark. Long narrow leaves that strongly smell of citronella. Buds in threes. No clear boundary between cap and cup of the flower bud. Young trees have a more variable flowering time. Characteristic urn-shape fruit. Because the species is somewhat frost and drought-hardy, some small woodlots and single trees are occasionally met with the interior as the remains of test plantings, or in towns and cities. Formerly cultivated commercially in Zululand where some honey was harvested. Pollen crude protein 24.7% (Aus)"(Johannsmeier, M. F. (2016). Beeplants of South Africa: Sources of Nectar, Pollen, Honeydew and Propolis for Honeybees) "Tall, graceful, shaft-like tree 35 to 40m high, found on poor gravelly soils from sea level to about 600m. in rainfed area, but is not particular in its soil requirements and will grow well in almost any soil. Somewhat frost-tender in early stages. Tropical and subtropical, but grows satisfactorily in temperate regions. Commercial timber species, also distilled for itls oil. Beautiful widely planted ornamental. FLowers June to July and seeds freely." (Penfold, A. R., & Willis, J. L. (1961). The Eucalyptus : Botany, Cultivation, Chemistry, and Utilization.)

Pink porterweed . . . This plant attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. . It is a little more floppy and heat sensitive than the purple porterweed, but air layers well, and provides a softer tone in foliage. These guys are survivors though, dont givr up on them even if the foliage dies back. More pruning will result in more cuttings, and a bushier plant. . . I thought it would be good to plant some Zuchinni at the bottom to shade the ground and produce some edibles. . . Filling out spots under trees and plants brings a lot of gardening satisfaction to me :) I hope these zukes make it.

Arborescent Ivy, the mature shrubby stage of the climbing form. Imagine the sound of around a hundred bees foraging for food this afternoon. Ivy, in the right place, is an excellent garden plant, and of huge benefit to wildlife.

Euphorbia pulcherrima formerly known as Poinsettia pulcherrima and commonly known as Poinsettia and Christmas flower and is a good source for nectar and pollen for honeybees. "...Mexico. A rather gangling shrub that drops its leaves as flowering commences. Red 'petals' are actually flower bracts that surround the small petal-less flowers. Double cultivars not of use of bees. Rarely bee-visited in inland locations, probably because temperature are not high enough for nectar secretion. Better bee attraction in the subtropics." (Johannsmeier, M. F. (2016). Beeplants of South Africa: Sources of Nectar, Pollen, Honeydew and Propolis for Honeybees) "Visitors to Hawaii at holiday time are usually amazed at the brilliance and abundance of these well known flowers, as they grow out of doors in banks and hedges.... The color of the double variety is deeper and richer than the scarlet of the common single red...This accounts for the great regularity of its blooming period in November and December...The other varieties of poinsettia sometimes seen are the rose pink and the creamy white...(Kuck, L. E., & Tongg, R. C. (1965). Hawaiian flowers & flowering trees) "Sap toxic. Propagated by cutting."
