The exposed location of the bees on a North Sea island, the salt marsh flora and the slightly salty honey taste are exceptional in every respect :

  • common sea lavender (Limonium vulgare) depends on flat coasts with strong tides
  • as a salt plant (halophyte), the distribution area in Germany is limited to salt marshes along the Wadden Sea and on North Sea islands. This honey comes from bees on the island of Borkum (East Friesland).
  • a rare species of beetle and its brood feed exclusively on sea lavender (lilac shrew weevil)
  • Tourists love it as an ornamental plant, as a bouquet and in the dried state, and in order to protect it from extinction, it had to be placed under strict species protection according to the Federal Species Protection Ordinance
  • Sea lavender is not closely related to lilac, the name only refers to the lilac color of the flowers; other names are sea lavender and Hallig lilac
  • The plants flower quite late in the year, around August to September
  • The North Sea weather, which is often rough in autumn, with constant wind, makes bee flight more difficult or can even prevent it
  • Bees placed in salt marshes need dry housing, a suitable location is difficult for a beekeeper to find
