    Swamp Daisy I believe, don't know if honey bees work it, kind of doubt it though.

    The honey bees are all over them, more so than the goldenrod!

    They seem to be slowly phasing out while the goldenrod is coming in.

    Looks like Wingstem to me. On the stalk you might notice some 'fins' or 'wings', intstead of the stalk being tublar. If that makes sense. However, I am 99% certain that is wingstem.

    I agree with tsmullins. It appears to be Wingstem (Verbesina alternifolia). The Swamp Daisy or Swamp Sunflower (Helianthus angustifolius) flowers later in the season.

    The bees really go at it. I think for pollen. As it subsides, now they are on the goldenrod. I have a lot of both in my fields. They love both. Thank you for the identification.
