    Default What kind of flower is this?

    This is the first year I have really noticed the bees working this flower. I assume it is some kind of Aster, but I'm not sure. They are working it as much as the Goldenrod.

    Looks like White Heath Aster, a very common aster found in fields which bees work well.

    Thanks, I notice the bees seem to really like it.

    My wife has really been on me this year. I have not mowed any of my fields. She says the place is a total jungle, but I'm trying to let all the wild flowers mature and bloom, for my bees. I just can't seem to please all the girls in my life.

    It's an aster. Mine are light purple and have more bumblebees than honeybees but the honeybees do work it
