Narcissus and bees

Wed, 14 Sep 2011 01:00:37 PDT
Dear All,
I have noticed how in the woods and fields here just how important the wild populations of Narcissus pseudonarcissus are for early bumblebees.
Other narcissus do not seem to interest bees of any kind.
Bees love Nectaroscordums here!

"Not the nectaroscordum (for me not an Allium) I have never seen a bee on it
same for daffodils and tulips
most Amaryllidaceae are not interesting
maybe because the sugar level is to low to attract bees
