Hello,

I saw some plants in the hardware shop today. They have a picture of a bee on the label and the words "The Beezneez".  The botanical name is murraya paniculata.  I bought 2 white ones and an orange. They grow to 4 metres, like full sun or part shade, warm to hot, frost free, and have scented flowers.  Does anyone know if these are good bee plants?  They might be Australian only.

We fenced off some of the paddock for a bee yard and are still experimenting with different lollies they might like.  They gather round fiddlewood, so one of those went in, some bottlebrush and paperbark, and a huge rainforest tree (I can't recall the name but I think the tag says it grows to 40m!)

It's native to Southeast Asia, according to Wikipedia.  It's in the citrus family so I'll bet it is a good bee plant.

Thanks, Reinbeau.

We're in a little island off SE Aisa  Wink  They look like they have a pretty flower, too.
