They do make honey outta walking stick. Not much though, once I've seen em almost fill a super. Really sweet light honey gotta pull it before the goldenrod. I just let em stack it up for winter. The blooms look great this year! Best I've seen it in years! Deer also love the purple berries they produce.

Blooms haven't quite opened here. Any day now!

Does anyone know what this plant is? My bees are all over the open blooms of this plant.

Jaimes, Per chance do you know the germination rate for the prickly ash, aka devil's walking stick? I've seen some around here and wanted to plant it.

I saw a type of goldenrod blooming in central Chilton county (central Alabama) this past weekend.

I saw some golden rod two weeks ago blooming up in Huntsville. It should soon be down around our area :tongue:

Do you have clearer pictures of just the flower?  Over all, it reminds me of a poinsettia genus.
