Does anyone know if there is an alternative to the Autumn Olive that will provide Nectar and pollen at approx the same time in Northern Alabama USDA zone 7a?
Two questions:I agree I wouldn't mind taking advantage of an invasive as long as it can be controlled but in the case of autumn olive I definitely can't stop it now and if I ever stop trying to at least slow it down every year my whole property will be covered with it along with alot of adjoining properties there
is no end to it wish I would have known .I'll stick with my goldenrod !!! and put up with multi flora rose .
Sounds like a great place for bees.I have 15 acres mostly Autumn olive , honeysuckle , multi flora rose and goldenrod as far as the invasive plants go but no privet as far as I know, not sure if it grows as far north as Pa. We do have alot of Japanese knot weed in the surrounding areas .
