I live in western North Carolina and this flower started blooming just after the sour wood trees quit blooming. The bees are all over them. The plants are 4-8 feet tall and very prolific. Does anyone know what they are? I'm a new member and glad to be here. Thanks.

I believe it is Japanese knotweed. It is very invasive & very difficult to get rid of. I'd let the bees find it elsewhere, ie. not on your property.

Wow folks! That's exactly what it is. I never expected such quick responses. Thanks a bunch.

Awesome, thanks for asking that question. I've been meaning to ask it myself but haven't gotten around to it. Here in SE KY, we call it waterweed, I don't know why because it grows in places other than the water. It is an annoying plant, but its good to know that its a honey plant.
