    Default Is this camphorweed?

    In a previous post, someone said they couldn't see the picture. Here are a couple of the field & flowers. I think it is camphorweed, but not sure. Is this a good nectar source, or is it pollen? It looks like the aster family. Bees were all over the flowers.

    Hmmm, I wonder what the differences are in these two plants. Do you think it is a nectar source? (HOPE, HOPE)

    If it's camphorweed, and with those hairy stems it looks like it, it's a member of the aster family and they are a good fall crop, maybe not as good as goldenrod, but with a field like that I'd say you were in luck.
