Want to feed the bees now?

It’s a buzz with bees.

Now – late summer and fall are a particularly important time to feed bees. This is the VERY BEST shrub /small tree to feed bees at this time. It flowers now when few other shrubs bloom, then turns its white flowers into red calyxes lasting into October. There’s also the BEAUTIFUL exfoliating bark all year.
