There are plenty of trees that attract honeybees, however there are a few species that really stand out for different reasons.
- Black Locust. These trees are known for being a source of some of the highest quality honey, especially the ‘Purple Robe’ cultivar.
- Crape Myrtle. Given the frequency and duration of this tree’s blooms it is a great source of food for honeybees.
- Black Tupelo. Although this tree doesn’t have very showy flowers, it is a contender to the Black Locust when it comes to prized honey.
- Tulip Poplar. This tree produces large and numerous flowers that are very attractive to honeybees, especially at times when other plants have lost their blooms.
