Whitehead broom, also known as shrubby false buttonweed or southern larraflower, is an important nectar source for bees and wasps. The tiny flowers bloom in clusters at the upper nodes of the plant. Whitehead broom is becoming problematic in south Florida pastures, hayfields, and rights-of-way. Infestations between 50 and 100% in bermudagrass hayfields, bahiagrass pastures, and sod fields have been observed. But, here at Hoot Acre Farm, they feed the bees.
