Is this the same as Honey Mesquite, a native of Arizona desert…
I was looking for Arizona native Lonicera… and ran into this site.. site itself is very interesting.. and found this name.. that I thought rang a bell as having seen in eflora forum recently… and sure it has the same name…
Now I wonder how did a native of Arizona flourish in Haryana?
Yes .. it is, i also think Honey Mesquite
I dont know why this name but i have seen lots of Bees on its flowers. After the visit when i saw this tree. I am looking for it at another places also. But not even a single tree could be found except that little stretch of about 500 mts near Karnal. I have to enquire more in this matter
