I have these "trees" in my area. the native bees love it. I've not seen any honey bees on it. though I've only looked it over a few times.
Better yet - keep the valuables in a beehive.That is a good idea to plant your weed by your hives to keep away nosey neighbors, "guard bees." With the variegated leaf it looks very similar. Around here we can just go buy it at the neighborhood pot shop.
