Most years there seems to be very little nectar flow around here by late August, but I was at a friends house and he had glossy abelia blooming still. It had a lot of bumble bees on it, but no honey bees. He says he almost never sees any honey bees in his yard, I believe I read they do like it. My local nursery does not carry glossy, but they had canyon creek abelia. After seeing a bumble bee working one, I bought several. Just wondering if anyone has these and if the bees like them.
