Saw black, dark green and orange pollen coming in. What would have these colours at this time of year in the Pacific North West?

Joe Pye Weed pollen is a dark greenish blue colour. The hives I had pollen traps on were bringing in lots of it in the last couple of weeks. Orange could be trefoil, asters or goldenrod - though goldenrod is usually more yellow than orange here.
