What are the pros? Bee forage all growing season.
What are the cons? sometimes smell overwhelming
The bees hit it all spring, summer and now in the fall. I'm in central alabama and we haven't had a decent rain in about six weeks, hurray huricane patricia, so i tend to doubt the bees are getting overwhelming amounts of nectar, but a truckload of orangish reddish pollen.
The minor/wolf bees, carpentar bees, honey bees, and at least three other bees/wasps are hitting it.
The smell, while undoubtedly sweet can be almost overwhelming. It smells to me like some kind of artificial candy flavor. I grew three plants in a spread next to some strawberries and about eight under some wild dagga, and man alive they went nuts. Several feet of spread. "Oh and the bees, clouds of sulfar, and hummingbirds hit the heck out of the wild dagga.)
