Surrounded by the snow-on-the-prairie plants!

We are surrounded by the snow-on-the-prairie plants and I was wondering if they are of any use to our bees... There are acres of the stuff about 50 feet from my hives...

I have not found any information on this plant relating to bees. This link http://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=EUBI2 has pictures and other information on the plant.

The plant has a toxic white, milky, sap and is in the same family as the poinsettia plant...


Anyone know if this plant is a help to the bees?

Thanks
