    Default Jasmine?

    I have some beautiful smelling and looking jasmine but never see the bees on it . Do bees even like jasmine?

    if it is yellow jasmin??? (don't know scientific name) the pollen is poisonous to the bees. they typically will only collect pollen from yellow jasmine during the early spring buildup when nothing else is available.

    ps... I have little yellow jasmin here, but I have been informed that the bees appear drunk and other syptoms appear to something akin to a mild case of insecticide exposure.

    Here we have "Carolina Jasmine". Nice yellow flower, grows wild in the woods. Same story Tecumseh tells. I've never seen a bee on it.
