    I know the bees go for clover, but how about purple prairie clover? Has anyone seen their bees working it? I purchased some seed from a land owner in the Flint Hills of Kansas. I plan to put the clover in my pollinator garden.

    I would love to have a little of that clover growing here too. I don't know for sure but I seem to remember bees on it when I was younger and harvesting it for teas and salves. It's great stuff!
