The tree whose name is bee ...

Nowadays, we will know the only tree on the planet called the bee tree.

Its official Latin name is Tetradium daniellii, bee-bee tree.
It is one of the nine species of the Rutaceae family.
In English-speaking countries, this tree is called Evodia Hellenistic EVODIA.

I think you should start to understand why this is called as a bee tree ...

If not, I'll tell you right away.
This tree likes bees very much.
Its flowers are fragrant from far away and not just that.
Perhaps it is the plant that produces the most abundant nectar.
It is enough for 2-3 honey to lick a bee to nectar and leave for her hive.

The flowering period is from the end of July to the end of October.
It is a species that mainly gives nectar, and queens give more eggs than any other plant.
It can survive in poor soil with little or no moisture and does not have many requirements.

See the party that is done on its flowers !!!

Honeybees are refreshing their populations in the autumn with this tree.

The tree from Korea can reach a height of 10 - 15 meters after 30-40 years, it is a medium-sized tree.
Its flowers are small, fragrant, sometimes pink or yellow, and are extremely attractive to bees and other insect pollinators.

How sorry it is to have such beautiful plants for our beekeeping and we do not even know them ...

It is already in most of Europe, with the main ones being the United Kingdom, Germany, and Italy.
It could be a wonderful tree in parks and flower gardens if we beekeepers had taken care to inform our municipalities through our clubs instead of planting trees and plants without interest in planting this tree or other things that would benefit bees us.

it's easy to find bee tree seeds through the internet and especially Ebay.
