Another yellow flower that seems to appear as the last of the dandelions are going to seed: Colts Foot, also known as Tussilgo.

Again, I don’t have a photo of a honey bees on them (yet), but I’ve seen honey bees on them enough times to know I can add them to my Newfoundland Honey Bee Forage List.

By the way, I see Colts Foot well into the fall. It’s possible I’ve confused something else for Colts Foot.

  1. the dandelion generally has a number of large green leaves as its base where the colts foot doesn’t
    .

  2. The stem of a dandelion is hollow. The colts foot stem is thin.

    I didn’t even know what Colts Foot was until I got into beekeeping.
