What is the "best" type of clover for honey bees in South Florida? I suspect my bees are probably starving in my yard. It gets can get as hot as 95F; winter lows of maybe 32F; I have sandy soil and it rains a lot during the summer. I planted 5 pounds each of two types of clover: 1) White Dutch Clover and 2) Crimson Clover. After reading a few threads, I learned red clover is not very useful for honeybees because the bee tongues are too short for the flower. So I figured I would ask the experts.
