    OK, tulip poplar has started blooming in my area. Privet still budding. Blackberry is behind here though. I think freezing temps last few weeks stalled them but I am seeing buds on them.

    I amend my previous post about the poplars, I can see the flowers developing, but they haven't fully developed or opened yet. Dunno how long that takes.

    Reviewing last year's post. Is it fair to say that the flow is several weeks later compared to last year? Not sure that it has started yet in Lilburn....

    Actually, I think it is more on time this year. Last year it was 2-3 weeks early because of the warm winter. The late season cold we had slowed it all down so we are about where we should be

    It is blooming here near Athens as I write. It doesn't produce a significant amount of nectar at this elevation....about 700ft. Up around 1500+ where it typically produces a surplus. it will begin to bloom in mid to late June.

    This is the first time I noticed some, but from their development, I'd say could have started a week ago.

    what you are most likely seeing is an earlier blooming variety of goldenrod. i've seen a little it of it around here in the past week or so. the more widespread variety should follow in 3 - 4 weeks.

    the two varieties look exactly the same to me, but the bloom time is about a month apart.

    I can confirm this is the late blooming variety, the flowers are just starting to open.
    I got a tall plant, it's leaning on one of my hives, next to a white aster plant....
