Most bees seem to use daffs reluctantly if at all. I am asking if those of you who grow many daffs notice any difference within the scented daffs. I like daffs well enough, but I am trying to lean heavily towards plants which offer a lot to pollinators...especially early and late in season. Anyone have anecdotes?
Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

Same!
You don't know if it will grow until you try!
