Do bees visit calamint plants in your area and do they make a lot of honey from this plant? I was visiting a nursery/plant gardens that sells plants, and items related to plants and while walking past this calamint plant display I noticed honey bees all over them. Brought home a tray of these plants and planted them and sure enough my bees started working them this Fall.  I can't believe they will get much from these small blooms but they do like them.

If you consider that a lot of wildflowers have small flowers but are quite prolific, I guess it comes down to how big the plant is or how large a patch you have planted.

Our biggest honey producer is the gallberry. It is a very small flower, no more than a 1/4".
It produces thousands of flowers.
