Sunflowers are favorite stopping places for bees. “In September the fields and roadsides of the Great Plains erupt in a blaze of yellow as the sunflowers and goldenrods (also members of the sunflower family) make their presence known to the local pollinating insects. While many sunflower species may begin blooming in July, they are not as noticeable then as later on when they have grown up and over the surrounding vegetation.” For more information on sunflowers, check http://www.gpnc.org/sunflower.htm
