Any sites that will give you all the different pollen types and times of year when they bloom in your area of the country,
I live near Columbia SC?

Many sources of pollen are the same as nectar.

In the low country, gallberry, holly, huckleberry, tulip and asters are but a few, besides the normal clovers, etc.

Getting a good book such as "American Honey Plants" by Frank C. Pellet also allows you to identify local floral sources and determine value and timing.

The other thing to do is contact your state university or agriculture extension office and see if they have any material on the subject. Many states have college or state resources for such matters.
