Okay guys what is it. I thought it might be china berry but my mom said absolutely not. I used to have one of these before I moved to the country and became a beekeeper but I don't know what it is. There are several very large ones on my mail route and the bees seem to love it. Any help? I know you guys know , give it up.
Bee lovin" tree


I have about 30 Korean Evodia I started this spring that are about 18 inches tall. I am going to plant them this fall and I would like to plant a bunch of these too.
Thanks for your help.
P.S. Beemaster I reviewed the video instructions before posting so I got it right the first time.

OK, now identify this one. I was looking at a tree in the wild today that has the same flower, but has sawtooth edge leaves. What might it be?

Tallow trees don't even need dirt to grow, I've seen them growing in parking lots. They say they are a wickedly invasive tree and there are many programs to oust this wretched tree, but I love them!  grin

Why Bud? The Evodia or the Tallow? By the way, I have 13 acres here and my neighbor is on the other side of a 100 acres of horse pasture.

Chinese tallow tree is an invasive tree.  I rode my horse and came across tallows that were at least 50 feet tall.  They will take over, but the bees love them.
