It’s not snowing anymore, but I still feel like I need a summer pick-me-up. I have been told that this flower is often called the Mexican Sunflower, to me it was merely the bee magnet. Every time that I went out into the fields at my Farmshare, I knew that even of the most dreary bee-drousy days, I would fine some among these humongous shrubs. I have since learned that not only is this plant a bee attracter, but it is also a very effect low cost fertilizer for fields that have been stripped of their nutrients. A win, all around, as I see it.
