Goldenrod blooming in Cloudland Canyon, (NW) Georgia. It's the small kind.

It is a cold tolerant palm that got its name because if you cut out the heart, the newest branch before it comes out, you can cook it and eat it and it tastes like cabbage. If you do this you kill the tree.

Ten minutes ago I saw Goldenrod just starting to bloom in a creek bottom.  This the earliest I ever remember, usually they start blooming about the first week in Sept.   This is in northeast Texas, it looks like a long winter for the bees.

  The golden rain trees are in bloom here in N FL. Looking forward to seeing how the recent rains affect the fall flow. The spring flow seemed less productive than last year but it was so dry here.

  This is my third year and have yet to smell the goldenrod being brought in. Maybe I'm just too far from it. ?

Bob,
Where you live is mostly residential. Not a lot of open land for Goldenrod to grow. On top of that you have a lot of Raintrees in your area. The bees will work the best source of nectar first.

Have you seen the Beesfest thread? Do you plan on attending it?

  Hi Jim,

  Yes I saw the thread and I'm planning to be there but I hate to promise this early. I just came home from two months in VA, that trip wasn't planned until early July. That being said if you could use some extra hands around there to get ready put me on the list. Your farm sounds awesome and I'd love to see it!
