    The Bees go nuts for the sedum at my Fathers farm, I think there are many varieties. His have palm sixed flowers and it is nothing to see 50-75 bees on any blossom when they are working them. Not sure how much they can get from the few plants but they sure love what they are getting. G

    Palm sized flowers makes me think those are the tall sedums like Autumn Joy. I have quite a few varieties of this type of sedum. The bees really love those. I can't take a picture of those sedums without a bee in the picture.
