The conclusions

The main finding is that the flowers are not equally attractive to bees , even when focusing on suitable for bees , and the variation is significant based on the flowering coincidence of various plants.

Likewise, most bees do not care about the origin of the plant , as long as the structure of the flower allows them to reach the nectar or pollen.

It is important to provide a range of different flowers to attract both honey bees and wild bees and limit adverse competition in times of bee scarcity. See other plants here
