    Default Maples and rain

    Does rain wash out the nectar from maples? Hope not as they are in full bloom. Unfortunately, rain is predicted for the next week.

    not sure whether it knocks the nectar out of the flower nectaries, but getting tons of rain that the tree roots soak up can certainly dilute the sugar content in the nectar.

    from my experience yes and the pollen gets washed away too.
    but it seems the bloom is somewhat staggered on the same tree.
