I know they get nectar from it because you can smell if you are anywhere near the hive.  They may also get pollen, I’m not sure.  They really liked it in my area and preferred it to all the other goldenrods around.  I have fields that have been allowed to grow nearby and I went crawling around in the weeds and when this was available the bees were all over it.
