    Default blue speedwell

    I was at Lowes and saw this plant with a lot of bumble bees on it. I was wondering if anyone had plant it and did the honey bees like it?

    I planted some a few years ago, and the bees in this area weren't really working it. Maybe it's a regional thing, or a difference in the climate here. I thought it would be a great bee plant.
    So many weeds.......so little time.

    I have speedwell in my garden-the bumblebees seem to love it, but I've yet to seen any of "my" bees on it!

    I don't know about speedwell for sure, t may be one of those plants with deeply-situated nectaries that only a bumbles' long proboscis can reach.
