Hello,
I'm from Romania and I started three months ago a 3 bee hives hobby "activity".
Saw in my parents garden a bushy yellow flower plant very much visited by bees an bumblebees.
After a difficult search, a friend from the States told me its a North American ox-eye 'Light of Loddon' .
Can someone tell me what does the plant provide: nectar, pollen or both and in what quantities, if its possible !
Thanks.

Thank you for bringing this up. I just watched bees on them in a garden in Woodside, California. Now you gave me the name. They appeared to be primarily working them for nectar. I will watch again this week.

That looks like Zinnia Profusion. I just planted some in my bee yard in Ben Lomond Ca. The nursery guy said that bees love them for nectar.
