It's been almost a year now and I am hoping to get my bees moved over to a location that has tons of this. Should be a good source for fall honey.

You're gonna love the honey this plant provides BUT keep it in check at all times.  If you can't mow all around it find a place where you can before planting it anywhere!

Good luck.

I decided against planting any of it. I am going to put bees on an established plot.

I guess y'all yanks have your own privet hedge now. Down here it's privet and it is an excellant honey plant for pure flow, though the honey does have an off putting wang to it. It makes a good filler honey if you have enough whatever else to cover the taste.

If it's invasive, I'd leave it alone, great honey plant or not.

I repeat, I am NOT planting it, just going to take advantage of existing plants.

 a little 24D with some surfactant will take it out.  Grazon is what they wipe out tallow trees with.

24D heh? 

Spraying Dioxin (Agent Orange) is somehow better  rolleyes than the plant being irradicated or controlled? 

Me thinks not, but that's just me.  I'd much rather mow it than subject me and mine to that stuff.  In S/E Asia 40+ years ago I didn't have a choice of being exposed....but we all do now  cool.

As for the honey (taste), well I leave it all for my bees as it flowers in the Fall in N/W Wisconsin even after the Goldenrod.
