SOLVED: Help! What is this tree that bees love?

Algood, TN

I have this tree with tiny flowers that honeybees love! I would like to find out what it is so I can plant more of them. Any help would be appreciated!

It reminds me so much of our native Frangula purshiana (Cascara) http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/2106/ including the bloom, pronounced venation on the leaves, etc. I'd suspect you have something closely related.

Compare with Rhamnus caroliniana - which probably has a rename by now...yes indeed.

Frangula caroliniana...and the images match yours pretty well.

Thanks so much!! The Rhamnus caroliniana does appear to be what this tree is. Now I can get more for my bees!!
