  1. Hi,
    I like this guide, but I’m curious about why you list the California Buckeye as bee friendly. It is completely poisonous, and the common European Honey Bee, which is now prevalent throughout the U.S., cannot resist the enticing blossoms that will kill them, as they have no resistance to the toxins. Only native bees and butterflies can survive all of the poisons in this lovely tree.

    • Hi Jo,
      Did not know that about the buckeye and honeybees! It was always on my list but never came across the lit about the diference in toxicity for native vs honey bees. Thanks for the ‘heads-up’.
