We have a very similar wildflower here and it blooms profusely. I know it as Hawkweed, but I don't know which variety it is. I have never seen a bee on it either. It's blooming now and if they were going to use it, I would think they would be on it now, since the only thing left blooming is Sumac and it's very sparse around here. Definitely not enough Sumac here to have any effect on my honey crop.

Hawk weed, has different leaves and generally a branched stem with many flowers. I often see bees taking pollen from them not so sure about nectar
