    Greetings,
    Does Big Sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) produce a surplus flow?
    Thank you

    There is quite a bit of artemisia around here that everyone calls sage.I believe it is wind pollinated but I have seen bees gathering pollen from it.It produces no nectar.There is often rabbitbrush growing in the same areas,which does produce nectar and abundant pollen.The honey from rabbitbrush is horrible flavored and I let the bees have it all.
