Bees Love the BeeBee Tree!
a beekeeper, you're always looking for a flowering plant that provides
nectar that the bees can work. Club members have discovered that honey
bees love the BeeBee Tree. They will work it magically.
BeeBee tree is covered in late July and August with masses of large,
flat white to gray clusters of small white flowers. BeeBee trees are
of particular value because few other trees-sized plants are flowering
as a late summer nectar source. Honey produced from the flowers is very
sweet and tasty.
BeeBee tree, Tatradium danielli, develops a smooth gray bark that resembles
a Beech tree. It grows to heights of 20 meters. The leaves resemble
the foliage of an ash tree and turn a glossy dark green in summer which
fades to yellow green in the fall.
