This medicinal plant is widely planted and tinkered with by gardeners and breeders. But, it really is a prairie species and when in its habitat, like the Badlands, big bees like to forage on it.
Hey, look, here’s one in this picture! Andrena helianthiformis. I suppose this means “looks like A. helianthus, but…is not” in Latin. Indeed this taxonomic feint produces confusion because this big Andrena likes Echinacea not Sunflowers. So now you know and your life is just a little bit more complete Citizen.

I’m close to finishing the 2019 bee calendar and I was wondering if it would be weird if I were to ship them straight from the production company to lower the cost of the calendar.
(I would have to add the shipping cost to the cost of the calendar reaching my office and then to your houses so shipping it straight from the production company would be in the best interest of everybody)
Hey guys, I recently got chosen to be an ambassador for the company Tees for Bees!
Tees for Beescreates buzz about saving the bees with some funky tee shirts. They aim to bring the cause to the mainstream and to raise awareness among groups that would not usually be knowledgeable about bees and pollinators.
They donate at least 10% of their products toBee Cityto support the work they’re doing to save the bees and all their products are ethically made. They also participate in community outreach projects and educating young children.
You can use my code STEPHANIE to get free shipping on any purchase or just follow them on Instagram(@tsforbees) to keep up with the work they’re doing.
