    Default hosta plant

    I have hosta planted around my patio, the bees were all over them. What are the bees getting from them?

    Do they have aphids on them? The bees could be collecting honeydew.

    They could be gathering the guttation from the leaves if the plants are growing rapidly and the soil is wet.

    read about guttation here.
