    Do the bees work it? Does it have a Chamomile smell?

    I have seen bees on it, it is still in bloom after first light frosts.... it has a smell but i dont know chamomille scent so i couldn't say. Bitter type after-smell when squish plant or flower. I couldn't enlarge enough to make out fine details though. Maybe pull a bit and compare it to pictures.

    I googled what you posted and it appears your right. The bees really work it hard. They also have been collecting pollen too.

    Go to this link and scroll down about 1/2 way. It looks like White Aster (Heath Aster) to me. What do you think?

    I have let it run wild in my chicken pen. It is six feet tall! It almost shimmers with bees. the chickens sleep under it and they all seem to get along.

    Well it seems we all are close at least. It is in the aster family, if you need more info you could take a sample into your local botanist for more detailed info. I have several types that are local and several types that have naturalized.

    I'd call it an Aster. Around here, the bees will use it (and it's blue / purple cousin) well into the fall. Unfortunately, I have not seen much of it blooming this year. Now that the goldenrod is done, I'm a little bit worried...

    I sense an upcoming flow of sugar syrup in your area.
