I was watching the girls working this plant pretty hard early this morning. I don't know what it is but the bees seem to like it. I was wondering if any one knows what it is?
Looks like a kind of smartweed. Sometimes lumped in with the buckwheat family.
My horticulturist wife says it is in the Persicaria family. Smartweed is in that family, but the flowers look rather large for common smartweed.
Amazing!! Just this morning, I took some pics of my bees working what looks like the same plant. It comes up as a volunteer near the house.
